Correct, Let's Be Real. A quick review of the stories on this case:Mr. Johnson's assets were frozen in Jan 2011. He was arrested in June 2011
for mail fraud charges. The checks in question, according to the story were
written in Nov 2010, preceding all of the legal issues, including the freezing
of assets. At the time Mr. Johnson was apparently free to spend from his
accounts at his discretion. Why the checks hadn't cleared 1-2 mos after they
were written is not stated.I stand corrected.
$3M in Vegas spending is not a good sign...
The overall top riding fact is that the Federal gov't is at it again. In case
you didn't know, they have frozen all his assets including those that he can use
to support his family. He can only use them when the Feds think that they are
gracious enough to allow him to write a check. If not they bounce them so that
they can harrass them by issuing a warrant for his arrest. They can also tell
others that he is driving a car that is not his own, that way they can get the
police to think that he is driving a stolen car when actually he is driving it
with permission but it is actually not his car. He has alledgedly bilked people
out of money NOT convicted. Let's not put him in prison before the Feds can try
to chew him, his family, his friends, his neighbors, his church and everyone
else who knows him, knew him, or perhaps will know him later, out and spit him
as far as they can. If he is guilty, he should pay for it. So far, he hasn't
been tried. Lets wait it out.
he wrote the checks in Nov of 2010. Over a year ago. Were his assets frozen
before he wrote them? Or was he arrested shortly after?
Sounds to me like this person wrote the checks knowing that they wouldn't clear
the bank. I also believe he knew he was doing wrong and wants to put the blame
on the Govt., he knew his accounts were frozen and chose to break the law again.
Why not keep him in jail with no bond and hold him accountable for his actions.
This is a common pratice when you are charged with farud and commenting farud.
I really hate it when my $100000 Las Vegas Casino checks bounce!
Mr. Johnson knew that the checking account was frozen and that the checks would
bounce before he wrote the checks. He is not a nice man. He is not only a
"flight" risk but also a crook writing bad checks. He needs to await
his upcoming trail in jail so that he can do no more damage to other people.
Enough of this bailing him out by his friends and family.
Agreed with Mr. Barnes. 1) Mr. Johnson had already admitted to the court that
he was a compulsive gambler. 2) Mr. Johnson knew the government had frozen his
assets pending the outcome to the very serious charges against him. That means
he no longer had access to his checking account. What in the world was he doing
in Las Vegas writing checks to a casino? Do you suppose he was gambling there,
lost some money (a lot of money, apparently!), and trying to access his frozen
account so the casino didn't grab him? Allegedly, I mean. Take some
responsibility Mr. Johnson. If you can't, you should be locked up.
This guy just does not know when to stop talking.
Johnson stated,"The government decided to bounce them not me. They are very
angry with me at the moment so this is their retaliation." Seriously??
Take some responsibility for your own actions. Mr. Johnson sounds like a little
kid trying to blame anyone and everyone else for his actions. First, it was
defrauding thousands of internet customers (allegedly...of course), now this.
Mr. Johnson needs to quit trying to blame others for his own unwise decisions
and take some responsibility for his actions!
