Global Aquaponics: Where did it go wrong?

A Sioux Falls businessman who calls himself "The Tiger" is now facing federal wire and mail fraud charges.

How did Tobias Ritesman, and the company he created, Global Aquaponics, go from bragging about his new business from a swanky downtown office to standing in handcuffs in a federal courtroom?

The Argus Leader assembled a timeline from the Jan. 9 federal indictment against Ritesman and fellow Global Aquaponics executive Tim Burns, as well the extensive Argus Leader investigation into Global Aquaponics and Ritesman.

Also, for more background information on the court case, read this article by Jeremy J Fugleberg of the Argus Leader.
