RICHMOND, Va. -- The federal criminal trial of Richmond businessman Michael Hild now will be held next year, after he and his attorney last month requested a delay in order to deal with logistical challenges posed by the pandemic.

Hild, who was arrested last August on charges of securities fraud, mail fraud and bank fraud related to an alleged bond scheme at his now-defunct Chesterfield-based mortgage company Live Well Financial, had been set to go to trial in October in federal court in Manhattan.

Hild has pleaded not guilty to the charges and has remained free on bond. Click here to continue reading on Richmond BizSense.
