On Feb. 21 2012, a federal judge sentenced Dimitar Dimitrov, an accused Bulgarian crime boss who pleaded guilty to overseeing several ATM skimming schemes in numerous U.S. cities, including Las Vegas.

Dimitrov, who's been jailed since his arrest in May 2010, was handed a 41-month sentence by a Nevada U.S. District Court judge for the role he played in skimming crimes connected to two Bulgarian crime rings.

Bulgarian authorities want to prosecute Dimitrov on charges of raping two Russian women there in 1998. Dimitrov's attorney, Todd Leventhal stated "There's no hard evidence that he's a violent person,"

Others named in the indictment are Stefan Georgiev, Angel Iordanov, Danail Tchanev, Brian Johnson and Stefan Georgiev.

Over the last three to five years, skimming attacks have dramatically increased in the United States, as well as in New Zealand and Australia.

Exactly.

Apparently the (alleged) rapes of two Russian women didn't count as evidence of violence . . .
