The woman who was said to be the "right-hand confidant" of convicted ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein is pleading not guilty to charges of money laundering and bank fraud.

Former Rothstein CFO Irene Shannon in court Tuesday after being cuffed last week.

She's expected to spill the beans about co-conspirators in hopes of working on an eventual plea deal.

Insiders say her role in the $1.2 Billion scheme could bring down other Rothstein cronies, which may involve Broward Sheriff's Deputies and public officials.

Shannon is the 19th person charged in connection to the Rothstein saga.
