Andris Pukke, the former head of the nonprofit credit counseling group Ameridebt was sentenced to 18 months in jail yesterday. This marks his second trip back to jail for activities that began with his credit counseling operation in Germantown, Maryland.
Pukke pled guilty in January to hiding funds from authorities after he was ordered to turn over all funds for restitution after the FTC went after him in 2003 for charging excessive fees and taking advantage of consumers.
