PHOENIX - A U.S. Supreme Court justice has denied a request to block the deportation of a former Olympic wrestling coach living in Phoenix.
Roman Wroclawski is wanted in his native Poland on fraud and embezzlement charges from the 1990s.
His attorney claims the statute of limitations has run out in the case.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied a motion earlier this week to block Wroclawski's upcoming deportation.
The Polish government has accused the 57-year-old Wroclawski of conspiring to fraudulently obtain a $350,000 bank credit and embezzling from two companies in 1993 and 1994.
An arrest warrant was issued for him in 2005. Wroclawski was detained in a private Arizona prison for seven months until being released in June 2008.
Wroclawski is a former volunteer U.S. Olympic wrestling coach.
