     Yesterday, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette charged John Von Stach and VSP North America each with one count of Conducting a Criminal Enterprise, a 20-year felony, and 20 counts of obtaining money by false pretenses. The charges stem from allegations that Von Stach, through his company, scammed multiple investors out of millions of dollars in a solar powered generator scam. Von Stach, a Canadian resident, was arrested on Friday, June 8, 2018 upon entering Michigan from Canada. He and his company were arraigned on Monday, June 11, 2018 before the Honorable Peter J. Versluis in the 59th District Court. Bond was set at $1.5 Million cash or surety. Von Stach is also required to stay in the state of Michigan and surrender his passport. The next court appearance is scheduled for June 19, 2018.
