Charles Rodrick, who charged registrants up to $500 to have their personal information removed from websites he created, was arraigned today in Arizona. During today’s arraignment, Rodrick entered a plea of not guilty to all charges for which he has been indicted. Rodrick is scheduled to return to court on June 8 for a pretrial conference. Because Rodrick posted bond, he is living in the community and wearing a GPS tracking device.
In addition to Rodrick, two of his colleagues — Brent Oesterblad and Sarah Shea — have also been indicted on similar criminal charges. Oesterlad and Shea are scheduled for arraignment on April 27 in the same Arizona court. A trial in this matter is scheduled for September 9, 2021.
Restitution may be available to those who paid for removal of their personal information from Rodrick’s websites as well as to others he harmed financially or otherwise. Information regarding how to file for restitution can be found at www.courtkey.com.
