A KNEBWORTH conman could be jailed for 170 years by an American court after being charged over a �4.4m investment fraud.
Robert Tringham already has music legend Bruce Springsteen listed among his victims.
He now faces further claims.
The 64-year-old, originally from Knebworth, now lives in Diamond Bar, California.
He fled Britain in 1998 after losing a two-year legal battle in the High Court where he was accused of releasing two unauthorised CDs of Springsteen's music.
The rock star was seeking �2m in damages; the court found in his favour and Tringham disappeared shortly after.
