MADISON, WIS. – Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that William Guy, 51, formerly of Madison, Wisconsin, appeared in federal court this morning, following his extradition from Austria.
Guy was arrested in Austria in April 2018 on federal charges of fraudulently obtaining a passport, and on numerous state charges. At the time of his arrest, he had been a fugitive for more than seven years, and was on the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service’s most wanted list. Guy fought extradition from Austria for almost a year, before finally being removed from the country this week. Magistrate Judge Stephen Crocker ordered Guy detained based on his flight risk, and set Guy’s federal trial date for October 28, 2019.
