  • The FBI was contacted as early as 2011 about a network of websites operated by Rodrick and Oesterblad.
  • Roderick is scheduled to appear in Maricopa Superior Court on 4/14/2021.
  • A grand jury incitement was issued on March 19th, 2021
  • Rodrick has been charged under State laws in Arizona.
