The judge ordered Eric Bartoli held until the case is complete, and his next scheduled appearance is Jan. 22. reports that the 61-year-old sat quietly during the hearing after pleading not guilty.

Bartoli was indicted in 2003 on 10 counts including securities fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. The charges are related to his Wayne-County-based company, Cyprus Funds.
Authorities say he collected money from 800 investors in the U.S. and Latin America throughout the '90s, then failed to appear at an SEC hearing in 1999 before fleeing to Peru. He allegedly worked as an investment adviser and blogger while there.

U.S. authorities requested extradition in 2011; he was arrested by Peruvian police in 2013 and was returned to Ohio this week. Two men who ran Cyprus Funds with Bartoli signed consent decrees and served less than three years each.
