OneCoin Executive Irina Dilkinska Sentenced to 4 Years Over Crypto Scam – Bloomberg

The former head of legal and compliance for the phony cryptocurrency OneCoin was sentenced to four years in prison after admitting she helped launder hundreds of millions of dollars in proceeds from the scam.

Irina Dilkinska, 42, pleaded guilty in November to wire fraud and money-laundering conspiracy charges. US District Judge Edgardo Ramos on Wednesday declined her request to avoid prison and return home to Bulgaria to care for her two small children.

Calling her “a woman of great intelligence and a woman who ought to have known better,” Ramos also ordered Dilkinska to pay $118.4 million in restitution. She faced as much as 10 years behind bars under federal sentencing guidelines.
