Leonard Gotshalk: The former Atlanta Falcons offensive tackle turned Oregon businessman has faced criminal investigations for decades, yet he was still able to open an off-shore account through Mossack Fonseca, the Panamanian law firm whose 11.5 million documents on off-shore accounts were leaked.
In 1994, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission sued Gotshalk for providing investors with "false and misleading information" about a company involved in oil and gas investments, according to the consortium. In 2004, an Oregon court convicted him of theft, sentenced him to 20 months in prison and ordered him to pay a fine. In 2010, federal prosecutors in Philadelphia unsealed an indictment against him, claiming he was part of a scheme to inflate the price of tech-company stocks.
Martin Frankel: The Connecticut financier pleaded guilty in 2002 for looting $200 million from insurance companies. According to the Hartford Courant, Frankel became notorious for his lavish lifestyle, which included purchasing jewels, furs, luxury cars and a compound where he recruited women "through advertisements in alternative publications." His story, which ended with a flight to Rome with two female friends, even became the subject of a novel.
