Former FourWinds Logistics marketing director Eric Nelson testified in state Sen. Carlos Uresti’s criminal fraud trial today that the head of the company threatened to shoot him if he didn’t alter a bank statement to make it look stronger than it was in 201
Nelson said FourWinds CEO Stan Bates told him to add the numbers 187 in front of $98,896, the amount actually in the frac-sand company’s bank account, to make it appear that it had $18,798,896 in the bank.
Nelson said he initially resisted but ultimately gave in to Bates’ demand.
“He threatened to shoot me in the back of the head,” Nelson said, repeating testimony that he gave two years ago in Bates’ personal bankruptcy case.
This is not looking good for Uresti..
