Race Car Driver Scott Tucker Pleads Not Guilty In Payday Lending Case


NEW YORK — A race car driver pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges stemming from what U.S. prosecutors called his role in a $2 billion online payday lending enterprise that exploited 4.5 million cash-strapped consumers.

Scott Tucker, who competes on U.S. and European racing circuits, pleaded not guilty in Manhattan federal court to charges including conspiracy to collect unlawful debts in violation of federal racketeering laws.

Timothy Muir, a lawyer who prosecutors said worked with Tucker’s Overland Park, Kan.-based company, AMG Services Inc., also pleaded not guilty at Tuesday’s hearing.
