Hershey, Bradley trial moved to September

June 24. A trial previously scheduled for Cornelius residents Marlin Hershey and Dana Bradley on July 11 has been moved to Sept. 12, in the courtroom of Judge Frank Whitney.

According to an indictment handed down by a federal grand jury in April, from approximately 2009 to 2021, Hershey and Bradley induced victims to invest millions of dollars in unregistered securities offerings, promoted by the defendants through Huntersville-based Performance Holdings and other entities, including Performance Retire on Rentals, Distressed Lending Fund, Moteng Funding and Southeast Lot Acquisitions, among others.

In April, Bradley’s attorney, Chris Fialko, said he is not guilty. “We think the government does not understand what happened and drafted an inaccurate indictment, and we look forward to the common sense and wisdom of jurors to get it right,” Fialko said.

Hershey’s attorney, Mark Jones, of Winston Salem, could not be reached for comment.

“We are confident that a jury will find Dana Bradley not guilty at trial,” Fialko said Friday morning.
