ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A financial adviser and former radio host accused of running a Ponzi scheme has discovered there is no magic way to escape the charges.

An FBI affidavit made public this week says agents searching Dawn J. Bennett's home recovered instructions for placing three Securities and Exchange Commission attorneys under a "Beef Tongue Shut Up Hoodoo Spell."

Agents found a note saying: "I command you to hold your tongue."
