A former hedge fund manager man has been ordered to stand trial in superior court for an alleged plot involving an S&M site that can only be described as diabolical.

The father of two and former cub scout leader is accused of posing as his estranged mistress and asking that she be abducted and raped to satisfy her sexual-assault fantasies.

The defendant, Albert Hsu, 43, of New Canaan, Connecticut, allegedly posted detailed personal information about the victim, including her picture, home and work addresses, phone number, license plate number, the train she takes to work and the car she usually rides in.

Prosecutors claim the posting asked those responding not contact her prior to the abduction because it "would ruin the fantasy," according to news reports here and here. Authorities say Hsu hatched his evil plan to seek revenge.

A co-founder and former manager of the Anchor Point Capital LLC hedge fund in Florida, Hsu on Wednesday was ordered to stand trial in superior court. Previously, his case had been assigned to the more lenient domestic violence court. The man had overseen billions of dollars in investments for clients including Xerox and Atlantic Philanthropies.

He was arrested on March 2 and was charged with crimes including attempted kidnapping, attempted sexual assault and criminal impersonation. Hsu is being held on $1m bail. According to reports, he was previously charged in a domestic-violence case that was later dropped. He has a history of mental problems and was put on suicide watch.

The scheme came to light after a man saw the posting on the bondage website collarme.com and called the unidentified mistress. ®
