Judge orders USA couple to hand crowdfunding money over to homeless veteran

In the ruling, a judge in New Jersey also ordered the couple to provide an accounting of all the money earned through the Internet fundraising campaign.

The judge ordered the couple to transfer the money into an escrow account by the end of business on Friday and hire a forensic accountant to review the financial records within 10 days.

"He's homeless and penniless", Promislo said about Bobbitt.

Through conversations, she learned that Bobbitt was originally from North Carolina, and had been an ammunition technician in the Marines.

An injunction application filed by Cozen O'Connor law firm on Tuesday alleges McClure and D'Amico have mismanaged the funds, as well as committed fraud and conspiracy.

There are conflicting reports from the couple and Bobbitt about how the money was used and whether Bobbitt was a participant or a victim.

Officials say the couple had mixed the GoFundMe money with their own.

Mr Bobbitt walked a few blocks to buy Ms McClure gas.

"I wish that I could do more for this selfless man, who went out of his way just to help me that day. We're happy to help Johnny and help see that the generous donations of 14,000 people are honored". It was featured in national newspapers, including The Post. However, in an more recent interview with Megyn Kelly on the American TODAY Show, he said it was roughly $AU200,000.

IMF Argentina Bailout Working About As Well As The Last One
Argentina is crashing back into the kind of financial turmoil that Macri's market-friendly government had supposedly left behind. The Argentine currency has now lost 53 per cent of its value since the beginning of the year, to trade at 39.87 to the dollar .

But then the story soured with accusations of mismanagement and outright theft of the money raised on Bobbitt's behalf. But, Bobbitt did not have an attorney or financial adviser at the time, Fallon said.

D'Amico told the Philadelphia Inquirer last week that roughly $AU270,000 was left of the $AU546,000 raised.

He said he will give the money to Bobbitt when he is clean, because giving it to someone addicted to drugs would be like "giving him a loaded gun".

Regardless, a New Jersey judge disagreed. He learned of a helicopter ride they took over the Grand Canyon. McClure and D'Amico made a decision to try to help him get back on his feet and set up the GoFundMe account that drew $403,000 and more than 14,000 donors. "And if the monies aren't in the bank, they can pull their money out of their pillowcases and have them delivered to you, to be handed over and placed in a trust account". On Wednesday, he said he and McClure had opened up a separate account for Bobbitt.

Bobbitt's attorneys are working with him pro bono, at least on a "short term", Fallon said. "It's going to come down to a demonstration of all the money and where the money went". He went through two unsuccessful stints in rehab that brought him no closer to being sober.

"From what I can see, the GoFundMe account raised $402,000 and GoFundMe charged a fee of approximately $30,000", Fallon explained. When McClure ran out of gas, Bobbitt, who.

Bobbitt's attorney told The Post that he is now in detox and working to get his life back.

Ms McClure, an admin assistant, and her carpenter boyfriend, say that they were anxious the homeless man would spend the money on drugs. Appearing on television this week, D'Amico told Kelly: "Every dollar [Bobbitt] ever touched was used for drugs". McClure's and D'Amico's attorney said they had provided Bobbitt with more than $200,000, WPVI and KYW reported.

Bobbitt was still contacting McClure and D'Amico as of August 14 to ask for money, Badway said.

Mr D'Amico has said Mr Bobbitt spent $25,000 (£19,232.50) in a matter of days in December on drugs, in addition to paying overdue legal bills and sending money to his family.
