Kevin Trudeau, the Oak Brook resident who found fame in infomercials, was released from federal jail Monday after a six-night stay. According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
Infomercial king Kevin Trudeau has been doing the federal Hokey-Pokey for more than a month.
In, out, in and — on Monday afternoon — back out of jail again.
The smooth-talking convicted fraudster, 50, was freed by U.S. Judge Robert Gettleman, who has twice in recent weeks ordered Trudeau locked up for hiding assets in an attempt to dodge a $38 million court fine.
Gettleman said he’s still “not convinced, frankly” that Trudeau is the penniless pauper he claims to be.
But he said Trudeau will be more able to help a court-appointed receiver find his missing millions, and can better prepare for his criminal trial next week if he’s free.
