I LOVE THIS HAPPY ENDING! Man, so often all we have to read about is the murder/suicide when this stuff happens. So HAPPY he was caught ahead of time!
And, Laz? I will be your Valentine from afar. No need to go to these lengths, LOL!
"An indictment was unsealed today charging Flint Andrew Staton, 40, of Reading, Pennsylvania, with wire fraud. The indictment arises from Statons consistently overstating his income to qualify for financing of luxury cars, after which he defaulted, according to United States Attorney Zane David Memeger. To date, he has allegedly caused a loss of $119,167.46 to the car financing companies.
If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum sentence of 40 years imprisonment, a three-year term of supervised release, a $500,000 fine, and a $200 special assessment.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Postal Inspection Service and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Alexander T.H. Nguyen.
An indictment or information is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
I look at this as a travesty of justice! The guy should have been sitting in jail after violating the first personal protection order against him.
And the question that hasn't been asked is why the woman hasn't been granted a concealed weapons permit to protect herself against this guy........
