A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday unanimously rejected several claims raised by Roger Charles Day Jr., including that the government violated an extradition treaty with Mexico.

Day was convicted last year on wire fraud conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering conspiracy and gold smuggling charges. According to prosecutors, Day led a complex conspiracy involving at least 18 companies that defrauded the Department of Defense out of more than $11.2 million. The former Long Valley, N.J., resident was arrested in Mexico after a sting operation.

Day’s attorney, Richard Maurer, said his client is considering his options for further appeal.
