WILKES-BARRE – A federal judge has ruled that attorney Anthony Lupas of Luzerne County is not competent to stand trial for an alleged ponzi scheme.

Lupas was indicted by the feds last year for allegedly stealing millions of dollars from investors.

The judge ruled Lupas, who suffers from a mental illness, is unable to understand the nature and consequences of the charges against him.
