Colombian financier Hernan Botero was found guilty in federal court in Miami on seven counts in what the government says was a $57-million money-laundering scheme. Botero, one of the first group of Colombians extradited under a new agreement between the United States and Colombia, was convicted of one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States, one count of making a false statement and five counts of mail fraud. His attorney said that the case would be appealed.
