The investors who the pair allegedly bilked for more than $20 million were mostly people who were already retired or nearing retirement age, according to the news source.
"More than 100 Nebraskans trusted Mr. Schuster and Ms. Engle to invest money they had worked a lifetime to save," Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said in a statement. "They both deserve to pay for their crime of swindling money from Nebraska seniors."
The Beatrice Daily Sun reports that the charges stem from alleged acts that were committed in 2005 and 2006.
