Rizler's case now criminal

A U.S. District Court judge in Minnesota has ordered that an arrest warrant be issued for fugitive Christopher William Smith ("Rizler").

Judge Michael J. Davis ordered that U.S. Marshals arrest Smith so that he can face criminal contempt charges. A hearing has been scheduled for July 6 in the U.S. Courthouse in Minneapolis.

According to an FBI affidavit, Smith fled to the Dominican Republic last month in part so that he could escape facing criminal charges.

US Marshalls office in Santo Domingo We shall see how that strategy works out.

UPDATE: Do you suppose Smith knows that the U.S. Marhsals Service has a field office in Santo Domingo (pictured)?

I hope Chris Smith burns in HELL!!! He is a sick individual that knowingly and willing sold fake medications!!! I really hope he did not kill anyone in the process. I do know that a few went to the hospital. What he should be convicted of is attempted murder.
