Intelius founder charged with lies to grand jury

A co-founder of the Internet background-check company Intelius Inc. has been charged with lying to a Seattle grand jury about sex acts at a strip club.
John Kenneth Arnold, executive vice president of business development at the company, pleaded not guilty in federal court on Thursday following his arrest.
The indictment alleges that Arnold lied to a grand jury when he testified he had never engaged in sex acts with dancers at Rick's. His testimony was part of the government's racketeering investigation of the club's owner, Frank Colacurcio Sr.
Intelius, based in Bellevue, did not immediately return a call seeking comment. Arnold, who is married, was released on his own recognizance. Trial was set for April 5.
The charge carries a sentence of up to five years.
Emily Langlie, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office, says truthful testimony is the bedrock of the judicial system.
