Terrance Taylor Reportedly Sentenced to Five Years, Ordered Three Years of Probation, $3.3 Million in Restitution and Forfeiture of $101,313

U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Kovachevich has sentenced Taylor to five years after he pled guilty to a wire fraud conspiracy charge, and has also ordered three years of probation for Taylor, $3.3 million in restitution and forfeiture of $101,313 — the purported amount he gained in the scheme, according to the aforementioned Reports under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.

Prosecutors reportedly charged Timothy Roberts, Savtira’s founder and CEO, and Taylor in September 2015, stating that the pair allegedly labeled Savtira as profitable while proclaiming its patents and  agreements with nationally known technology firms, the Reports note.
The duo also allegedly made claims that Savtira offered a centralized, cloud-based shopping cart platform that could be utilized by online and traditional retailers in the process of online purchases regardless of the device being used by the buyer, according to Government Reports from Florida.
Reality shows that Savtira allegedly owned no patents and never had a working product, authorities reports. Finally, Savtira's bank account allegedly held a negative balance of over $5,000, according to Court Records in the case.
