Las Vegas Illusionist Surrenders $975k Before Sentencing on Child Porn Charges

Jan Rouven just saw another part of their life disappear on Monday, nearly $1 million from the sale of his house in Las Vegas’s Centennial Hills neighborhood.

Disgraced Strip magician Jan Rouven surrendered $975,300 to a federal court in Las Vegas on Monday, to pay for fines and target restitution as part of his plea bargain in a child pornography instance.

The former magician, that has headlined the ‘New Illusions’ show at the Tropicana for around couple of years before being arrested on child pornography charges in 2016, turned over most of the proceeds from the sale of their house to a federal court.

The 39-year-old German-born illusionist pleaded responsible in November to three felony counts of possession, receipt and distribution of youngster pornography.

The monies collected Monday will go towards paying fines, court fees, and target restitution.
