PHOENIX — A Phoenix real estate investor accused of helping two clients
purchase a home with money made from drug trafficking has been released.
KPHO-TV reports a judge ordered Tanya Maria Marchiol
(mark-ee-OLE’) be released Thursday but forbade her from leaving Arizona.
Marchiol will be allowed to work but must follow a curfew and stay under GPS
monitoring. The judge also ruled she can’t make purchases above $500.
Marchiol was indicted by a grand jury Oct. 8 on 11 federal charges, including
conspiracy to commit money laundering and structuring financial transactions.
According to the indictment, two people approached Marchiol in 2008 about
buying a home but helping them conceal ownership.
Marchiol has been a commentator on business and real estate for television
networks including Fox News and CNBC.
