A Deschutes County judge refused to lower bail for the couple accused of scamming people out of thousands in a wellness center franchise operation. Todd Surgeon and Laurie Rose are charged with theft and fraud. Four victims were in the courtroom Tuesday afternoon, including Richard Lee. “The four of us on the victim list, our lives have all been radically altered over the past year, because of our involvement with these people. We’ve collectively lost a lot of money through investing in this business.” Surgeon will be back in court on December 29th and Laurie Rose will be back in court for a plea hearing on December 23rd.
