John Peter Galanis, the 44-year-old financier whose career has been a 20-year continuum of big money and big trouble, vividly recalls the day in April, 1986, when his grandiose plans to rebuild a part of Atlantic City, N.J., began to crumble.

A criminal court judge in Manhattan set bail Wednesday at an unusually high $10 million for John Peter Galanis, the San Diego County man arrested earlier this month on state and federal charges involving alleged massive securities fraud. The ruling by state Judge Harold Rothwax effectively means that Galanis, a 44-year-old convicted swindler, has little chance of getting out of jail anytime soon.

The 44-year-old tax shelter promoter, a resident of San Diego County, was named in a 38-count federal indictment along with five associates on charges of racketeering, tax fraud and securities fraud. The indictment amounts to a formal charge against Galanis, who was arrested in mid-May at his home in Del Mar.
