‘Annuity King’ deemed a flight risk as sentencing nears on fraud conviction
August 24, 2023 by John Hilton
A pair of Tampa judges rejected two appeals this week by Phillip Roy Wasserman, the self-styled “Annuity King,” as his sentencing on fraud charges nears.
Judge Sean P. Flynn denied Wasserman’s request to be freed on bond. Wasserman, scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 6 on fraud charges, is under 24-hour home incarceration with electronic monitoring, with exceptions for medical necessities, court appearances and court obligations.
