Feds Revoke BG Businessman's Bond

By Gene Birk | 

Dean A. Knight had been free until U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Goebel revoked his bond, because he got indicted April 6 for allegedly writing cold checks. At Knight's bond revocation hearing last week, testimony revealed he might be facing the same type of charges in Butler County.

Knight’s federal charges stem from allegedly misappropriating investors' money intended for oil well production, when he was president of an investment firm. His federal trial is set for August 15.
