$ 400G went to GoFundMe Cash for a homeless veterinarian and claims the lawyer
The $ 400,000 raised through the GoFundMe account to support a Philadelphia veteran was depleted after he gave the last part of the money to help a stranded car driver.
A lawyer representing Johnny Bobbit, whose story gained national interest last year after giving Kate McClure another $ 20 to fill the fuel tank, told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday that depleted account news ‘came as a complete surprise.’ Chris Fallon, the lawyer, said he was aware of the financial position of his client after a group call with McClure’s lawyer and boyfriend Marc de Amico – the couple who started the GoFundMe account for Bobbit after his gentle faith, promising him a home.
Fallon told the newspaper ‘I was completely shocked when I heard.’
Bobit’s lawyers asked the couple to stay in New Jersey, hand over their passports, register their bills and restrict access to their bank accounts after they failed to meet the deadline set by the court to deliver any remaining funds from the GoFundMe account.
Last week, the Supreme Court Judge Paula T. ordered. Dow will send the remaining funds to the Boubette Secretariat and submit an accounting report on the donated funds within 24 hours.
but has received nearly $ 75 thousand of the money he used to buy the campers and SUVs – both of which he no longer owns.
De Amico told the newspaper in an interview in August that he controls the money in the account, and that he will distribute the money when he gets a job and stops taking drugs. ‘Giving him all the money will never happen, I will burn it in front of him,’ he said, adding that giving the money addict would be like ‘giving him a mobile weapon.’
Bobit has admitted to the newspaper that the couple had one day offered him $ 25,000, and he spent it on giving it to relatives and friends, some of them on drugs.
Fallon told the newspaper on Tuesday that his client hopes to enter into a detoxification program.
Bobbitt, who questions the couple’s motives and fears that he has wasted money, claims to have used the money to buy a new BMW and get luxury vacations. He also wonders whether the couple has the legal power to deprive him of money.
Three lawyers representing Bobbitt pro bon.
Jacqueline Brumislaw, another lawyer for ‘Boubit’, said that the couple’s lawyer, Ernest E. Badawi, has never asked about the request for the transfer of the remaining funds of ‘Go Fundi’ or if the transfer of funds, according to the newspaper.
The paper could not reach McLure or D’Amico for comment.
Badway refused to comment on Fox News Channel late Tuesday.
The couple said earlier that the new car paid for their own money. McCurry, a receptionist, and Diamco, a carpenter, said they had done nothing wrong and had done everything in their power to help Bobbit.
The newspaper said that Padua claimed in court last week that Bobit stole at least $ 200 thousand of funds since the establishment of the account. He also argued that the Court’s order to transfer the funds within 24 hours was ‘harsh treatment’.
The newspaper said a hearing on the disputed money was scheduled for Wednesday at 10 am on Monday.
GoFundMe has donated $ 20,000 in the escrow account created by Bobbitt’s lawyers to help with housing and goods as legal proceedings continue, a newspaper spokesman said on Tuesday.
The company also said it is cooperating with the investigation.
