NE Ohio Car Dealer Enters Guilty Plea In Money Laundering Case

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Federal authorities say a northeast Ohio car dealer has pleaded guilty to 37 counts involving money laundering. But the agreement is under seal in U.S. District Court in Akron, and they won't comment on it.

Officials say 66-year-old Michael Miller, known as Mickey Miller, entered his plea on Thursday. But he won't be sentenced until a co-defendant is tried.

Miller was accused of using his car dealerships in Canton, North Canton and Wadsworth to launder money for drug dealers.

Sixty-year-old Paul Monea of Alliance, who made millions in the '90s on infomercials that sold Tae Bo exercise videos, is a co-defendant. He is accused, along with Miller, of trying to launder money by selling a 43-carat diamond and a 62-acre estate once owned by boxer Mike Tyson.

His trial is scheduled to start a week from tomorrow.
