- It's a wine fraud tale of greed and arrogance: Daniel Snelling was set to pull off a triple crown wine con when the walls began closing in.
The jury didn’t buy their claims; and neither did Judge Michael Grieve as he sentenced Daniel Snelling to seven and half years in prison in September 2013: “In my assessment you are not so much a cold and calculated criminal, but one whose conscience is eased by self-delusion and denial.” McDonald was sentenced at the same time to three years in prison, and one month later, Dina Snelling was sentenced to three years and 11 months.
Even if the wine fraudster trio had succeeded with the triple crown con, the scams would have continued. Investors by the hundreds and millions more in profit would never have been enough to satisfy the trio’s greed. More high life, more flash and more cold-calls from the boiler room.
