Not looking good for Helio. The Feds win 92% of the time. Once they start the trial all settlements are off. Whats the nearest Federal Pen to Brazil? Leavenworth? Already lost his ride for the year and multi million dollar paycheck. Too bad DWTS does not pay any money for the win, your gonna need it Helio..

heelio is innocent and his people are the ones who should be in trouble. handlers typically do the best they can for themselves and take as much as they can from the 'star' person. yes he should have paid better attention to his holdings/assets/onet stuff. but he didnt and these other people were in charge and messed up.
and hes cute.

Helio did nothing wrong,i think its a shame that we have a system that can take anybody out at any time,even if he wins this case he still winds up looseing,we have lawyers out there that make cattle out of everybody for there own greed,my buiness is on the brink of going out because of lawyers,i hate lawyers more that anything in this world,i really hope what goes around comes around,because that would mean every lawyer would get what they have comming to them,and that would be all bad,i wish them all bad health,and no wealth,that would be a good start,most of the lawyers are jewish and i wish hilter took them out many years ago,the world would be a much better place!

I think he probably tried to evade taxes, the same way most CEO's, corporations and other wealthy Americans do. I think the crime here is the Tax Code. Eliminate the IRS and institute a flat tax - EVERYBODY pays the same percent of income, no exemptions, shelters, loopholes. The IRS could be run by five people.
