The former chairman and CEO of Mamtek is fighting extradition.
Bruce Cole appeared today in front of a California judge and did not consent to extradition to Missouri, where he faces a stealing charge and four counts of securities fraud, all felonies. California Governor Jerry Brown must now request the court to order extradition.
Cole’s next court appearance has been set for Wednesday. He is being held on $500,000 bond and is being represented by a public defender.
