Robert Boston was found guilty on felony counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, security fraud and money laundering as a 12-member jury determined he defrauded investors in his now-bankrupt company Zloop. Prosecutors alleged Boston spent money on non-business-related items and did not make the required disclosures of past bankruptcies and fraud complaints against him when pitching investors, who put approximately $33 million into the company. Boston's attorneys had argued that despite Boston's best intentions, the company was poorly run and the $6 million spent on his son, Justin, to race in ARCA and NASCAR was part of the marketing plan known to investors. A date for sentencing was not scheduled.

Boston's attorneys argued that a poorly run business is not a crime, and there was no attempt by Boston to defraud investors of the computer recycling company Zloop.
