Former San Bernardino International Airport developer Scot Spencer has waived extradition, and should return to San Bernardino this week for arraignment, prosecutor Robert Brown said.
“He is en route or is shortly going to be en route, and I expect he’ll be arraigned in the next couple of days,” Brown said of Spencer, adding that Schyler Beaty, an investigator from his office, and FBI agents are tasked with bringing Spencer to San Bernardino from Florida.
Spencer, 48, and his business affiliate Felice Luciano, 69, were charged Friday with multiple felonies including criminal conspiracy and perjury in connection with corruption at the airport. Spencer was arrested Sunday in Boca Raton, Fl,, where he has been living with his parents since his ouster from the airport in October.
Meanwhile, Luciano, whom District Attorney Michael Ramossaid was a fugitive during a Monday news conference at his office, is expected to be surrendering to authorities soon, Brown said.
“I have had some contact with his attorney. I suspect (Luciano) is going to surrender himself,” said Brown. “We’ve had some discussions about him surrendering himself and that’s all I’m prepared to say at this moment.
Brown declined to disclose the name of Luciano’s attorney.
