She will spend the next three or so years in prison after she was sentenced for theft by deception in a case. She and her boyfriend, along with a third person, stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from do-gooders. McClure used the money on gambling, a luxurious lifestyle, and other expenses with the money collected under false pretenses and undermines the institution of donating.
The story is being made up by McClure
He pled guilty to one count of theft by deception in the second degree. She ran out of gas and didn’t have enough money to purchase additional fuel. Johnny Bobbitt, a homeless person, supposedly came to her rescue and offered to give her $20 to buy fuel.
She and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, launched a GoFundMe campaign to help the homeless person after she and her boyfriend posted the story on social media. The scam made off with $367,000 after additional fees were collected, after more than 14,000 people responded to the campaign.
The couple went on a spending spree, buying a BMW, spending New Year’s in Las Vegas, gambling in casinos, purchasing luxury items and so much more. He tried to remedy the situation by suing the couple, but he only got $75,000 from the total funds. When the case was brought against them, everyone realized that they did not have the best intentions when they started the project.
However, he was not solely responsible. He and the couple met near a casino. More or less, the trio planned the scam together. After a conversation about the truth of the story, one of her friends received a text from her. She said that while the gas part was made up, Bobbitt actually existed.
Everyone is aware of what is coming to them
She needed something that would make people feel bad. After bringing the case, Bobbitt pled guilty to committing theft by deception and was given a five-year special probation along with drug treatment. D’Amico pled guilty and agreed to serve a five-year jail sentence in New Jersey state prison. The fate of the only person left is sealed.
