According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, RedCon1 founder Aaron Singerman has been released from prison following 11 months served as part of a 5-year sentence. His release stemmed from pleading guilty to mislabeling nutritional supplements under the company Blackstone Labs LLC. The co-founder of the company, TJ Braun, also pleaded guilty.
As part of the plea agreement, Singerman was ordered to forfeit the proceeds of his crimes, which totaled $2.9 million. In addition to the hefty fine, the judge ordered that he serve 56 months behind bars. At the time of his sentencing, the U.S. Justice Dept. released a statement regarding Singerman’s supplement case.

Singerman is the former CEO of Blackstone. U.S. District Court Judge William P. Dimitrouleas of the Southern District of Florida sentenced Singerman to 54 months in prison and ordered him to forfeit $2.9 million.”

While Singerman has publicly stated he wishes he could go back in time and correct his mistakes, he believes effective leadership starts with taking accountability.
