Dilkinska is also alleged to have helped lawyer and OneCoin co-conspirator Mark Scott launder $400 million. After Scott's arrest, she destroyed incriminating information and notified another person involved of the arrest.
Dilkinska is charged with conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Either charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
