You can call the US District Court in Grand Rapids and provide this to them in case they are looking for him. Phone "616_456_2381".

Not true. He pled guilty to charges, this is a matter of public record. He purgered himself in his testimony and is currently trying to negotiate a new guilty plea with the US Attys office. He is currently out on bond and not suppose to be scamming anyone

I understand that Mickelson's sentencing is today, Sherwood is scheduled for next week and Heshelman the week after. I am aware of more individuals from coast to coast who are either partners and/or victims. You can't tell who is trying to scam who with a trail of victims all along the way.

Bryce's sentencing was moved to Feb 10th. The second partner was sentenced yesterday to 17 years prison and 3 years surpervised release after that. Also $7,000,000 in restitution. Good luck seeing any of that. I also heard the US Attorney's office is looking for feedback from any other individuals who have been dealing with any of these three men in the past or present.

The U.S. Attorneys office and the FBI are both looking for information on Bryce Sherwood's "business" /dealings since December 19, 2008, when he was arrested and released on bond. Any continued "investment" options or opportunities by Bryce Sherwood would be a direct violation of his bond.

Bryce Sherwood has been desperately pushing for $50,000. to finish a 'transaction'. Bet you anything that is the amount he owes to his attorney. Wonder if he managed to fleece anyone else of their money. Everywhere he goes people lose their money and he lives the lavish lifestyle.

Bryce is still claiming this grand jury case never happened or at least that it went away??? I expect the only thing that has a chance of going away is Bryce Sherwood trying to skip the country so he does not have to be confronted with the truth again at his sentencing. The truth will set you free or in this case lock you up for a long time.

An FBI agent was asked during the trial about when Bryce is lying ... the agent's response, "from my experience, any time he opens his mouth and talks."
Just the real truth

Please post the information that you have about Bryce Sherwood.

Any additional victims should get on board too.

OR talk with FBI Special Agent Tim Wetherbe at the Grand Rapids office who organized this investigation, arrest, and conviction.

OR talk with the guy, Alan Moody from Grand Rapids, who blew the whistle on this crook.
He would know what to do with any information too.

He will be out of the country before February 10. After he saw what happened to Heshelman there is now way he will risk jail time. He is a flight risk and the Grand Rapids District Attorney doesn't appear to be concerned. Just another "white collar" crime. Anybody from this forum going to the sentencing to speak?

FL Victim you are probably right. I wonder if there is any connection between these guys and Beau Diamond who was arrested last year for a 35,000,000 ponzi scheme in your neck of the woods. I understand that after the Feds get done the IRS may be kicking in. The shockwaves from this will be felt by victims, Bryce's business partners and family for years to come.
