Aaron Rossi asks the court if he can sell two condos as he awaits trial

Reditus Labs CEO Aaron Rossi wants to sell two condo units he owns in Peoria as he awaits trial on federal tax fraud charges, and he’s seeking a judge’s permission. Attorneys for Rossi, 39, of Bloomington, filed a motion Wednesday seeking to modify a pretrial condition that allowed him to be released from custody while awaiting trial.
