He had maintained his innocence right up until a jury found him guilty of running a ponzi scheme that cost investors millions. on Friday, former WFAN morning host Craig Carton posted an apology to his TwitLonger account that comes pretty close to him admitting he was guilty.
“I wanted to take a moment to check in and thank the thousands of you who have sent me your well wishes and prayers. I don’t deserve your kind thoughts at this stage of my life and while I appreciate them more than words could ever describe, I would kindly ask that you do the same for those who I have hurt as a result of my actions; family members, friends, co-workers, investors and loyal listeners. I let all of you down, I betrayed your trust and I’m sorry.
Last month a jury believed Carton raised over $4 million from investors, that was supposed to be used to re-sell tickets, and instead he used that money to pay off gambling debts and early investors. Carton was convicted of conspiracy, securities fraud, and wire fraud. The trial lasted one week and at sentencing on February 27 Carton faces up to 45 years in prison. In November Carton said he would be appealing the guilty verdict.
