Bernard Madoff’s former accountant has been charged with conspiracy and falsifying records.

Reuters reported that Paul Konigsberg, who was arrested Thursday, has pleaded not guilty to allegations that he helped Madoff defraud thousands of investors in the Ponzi scheme. He has been freed on $2 million bond with restricted travel.

Konigsberg is the 15th person to be criminally charged over the fraud centered at Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC. The trustee liquidating the firm has estimated that investors lost about $17.3 billion of principal.
