Mike Nixon was sentenced to 7 years in prison and $9 mil in restitution....He is the guy that faked his own death by destroying his Baja in Clear Lake a few years ago. Severa lpeople from the board here knew him personally.

I actually hung out with him on the weekends when I was in town from work.He was a bit arrogant but he was always nice to me. Always invited me out on his boats with his boat hoes. Never knew he would ever pull something that damn stupid!

I think he deserves everything he gets!

Don't recall all the details.

He had a heavy equipment company, cranes etc.

When money started to run out he financed non-existent cranes using fake paperwork, and got several banks for millions.

A lot of people spent a lot of time looking for him after it appeared that he ran his boat into a barge in Galveston bay.

It seems that most of what he did was to pay for his extravagant partying.
