From the United States Attorney’s Office – District of Columbia press release yesterday:

“New York Couple Pleads Guilty to Federal Charges in $4 Million Extortion Scheme

The Defendants’ Son Pretended to Be a New York Mobster as Part of Scheme

Archie Kaslov, 54, and Candy Evans, 51, of New York, N.Y., pled guilty today to federal charges related to their roles in a wide-ranging fraud, extortion, and money laundering scheme, which involved one of their sons pretending to be a New York mobster in order to get a Maryland man to embezzle more than $4 million from his employer in Washington, D.C. The announcement was made by Acting U.S. Attorney Michael R. Sherwin and James A. Dawson, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

In April 2018, a federal grand jury indicted Kaslov; Candy Evans; their sons Tony John Evans, Corry Blue Evans, and Robert Evans; and Robert Evans’ common-law ex-wife Gina Russell on various charges related to the extortion scheme. Read More
