ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles announced on Tuesday the indictment of former Anderson County Councilman Ronnie Wilson along with his wife and brother.

Wilson was convicted of mail fraud in 2013 for his role in a silver Ponzi scheme that bilked investors out of $60 million.

He, his wife, Cassandra Wilson, and his brother, Timothy Wilson were indicted on new charges on Tuesday alleging they conspired to obstruct justice and hide assets, according to Nettles.

Ronnie Wilson was also charged with making false statements to federal agents, Nettles said.

The indictments allege Ronnie Wilson gave Timothy and Cassandra Wilson ammunition cans containing money, which would have been seized to compensate victims of the Ponzi scheme.

Wilson is currently being held at the Coleman Federal Corrections Institution in Sumterville, FL.

Cassandra and Timothy Wilson have not been arrested on the charges at this time.
