Boyd Tinsley’s Financial Manager Charged with Wire Fraud
A close source has identified Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley as the victim of fraud committed by his financial manager, Getty Andrew Rothenberg. The Richmond businessman in charge of the Getty Group is now facing federal criminal charges from the U.S. Attorney’s Office on a count of wire fraud, during which Rothenberg allegedly skimmed $200,000 from his client’s personal accounts. In addition, the U.S. Attorney has cited 19 transactions from 2009-2012 that point to fraud. Most involve inflated billing fees converted for Rothenberg’s personal use.
Official court documents identify the victim as an Albermarle County resident named “CBT.” A newsleak reporting that “CBT” is, in fact, the star violinist broke last week, although the U.S. Attorney’s Office has since refused to confirm or deny this information.
Currently out on bond, Rothenberg is expected to plead guilty at a July 23 hearing in Charlottesville, VA, where Tinsley grew up. The indicted financial manager has abstained from any public statement regarding his charges. A phone number listed for the Rothenberg’s Getty Group appears to be disconnected.
