A 41-year-old former Culpeper businessman faces felony money laundering and embezzlement charges that reportedly started two years ago.

Clyde Thomas Sliger, Jr. of the 9200 block of Piedmont Springs Road stands accused of improperly conducting financial transactions for Tanom Motors worth more than $200 between Jan. 6, 2011 until Aug. 26, 2012.

Sliger, who opened the now defunct Wax Shop in Culpeper in 1993, is scheduled to return to Culpeper Circuit Court on Sept. 25 at 9:30 a.m. for his jury trial.

On Wednesday, Judge Susan Whitlock granted Sliger’s request to modify his bond, allowing the defendant to take a vacation with his daughter to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida from Aug. 18 to 24.

Meanwhile, Sliger remains free on a $4,000 unsecured bond that otherwise requires him to remain in Virginia until his trial and all appeals are concluded.

Sliger pleaded not guilty to both charges during his April 8 arraignment in circuit court.

However, court records show that the prosecutor has a binder of documents and a police report, detailing, “a host of activities, transactions or dealings claimed to be the basis of the two charges.”
