Arrested for trading Bitcoins -


Burt Wagner is a 53-year old electrical engineer who has owned and operated his own electrical engineering consulting business for the last 30 years.  A few years ago he became interested in a new
digital value transfer internet protocol called Bitcoin and began trading Bitcoins as a hobby for fun.  He has been very active in the Bitcoin community eventually reaching "legendary" status on the main Bitcoin talk forum.He will talk about his experience of being investigated and tracked for 18 months by homeland security, indicted by a grand jury, arrested, charged with a Federal felony, and thrown into solitary confinement in a Federal detention center all over simply trading Bitcoins on 
localbitcoins.com as a hobby.He will also discuss the nine months of legal negotiations that led to the charges finally being dropped and the return of most of the property seized in the raid on his home and corporate offices.We expect the talk to lead into an extensive question and answer session and the discussion of the subjects:  Bitcoins, localbitcoins.com, law enforcement tactics, the law, licenses, civil asset forfeiture, the prison system, the justice system, homeland security, the patriot act, surveillance, etc.  All of
which happened to him personally.For more information see:
