GoFundMe Donations Raised For Homeless Man Johnny Bobbitt All Gone, Lawyer Says

They raised $400,000 for a homeless vet. There’s none left to give him, lawyer says.

The $400,000 came from a GoFundMe campaign set up in November 2017 by Kate McClure and boyfriend Mark D'Amico aimed at giving the homeless veteran a "second-chance at life" after Bobbitt gave his last $20 to McClure after she ran out of gas.

During an appearance on Megyn Kelly's show last week, Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico insisted that $150,000 remained of the money they'd raised for Bobbitt.

He quickly retained pro-bono counsel and initiated a court proceeding accusing D'Amico and McClure of fraud and conspiracy to appropriate the money for their own personal use. A judge then granted a temporary restraining order to force McClure and her boyfriend to turn the money over to Bobbit through their lawyers.

The money will be transferred to an account controlled by Bobbitt's lawyers but can't be used until the judge determines how it will be managed.

But Bobbitt has said he was not given access to the money and suspected the couple used the money to go on several trips across the country, and for D'Amico to buy a vehicle.

Mr Fallon told WPVI he found out his client's money was gone during a conference call with Ms McClure's lawyer on Tuesday.

Fallon, Bobbitt's attorney, told the judge he would ask the New Jersey rehab center whether it is possible for Bobbitt to give his deposition at the facility.

Magnitude 6.6 quake shakes Sapporo city in Japan, no tsunami threat
Seko said utilities were planning to start up several other thermal and hydroelectric plants to provide at least some power. The quake hit at 3:08 a.m., with the epicenter in the eastern Iburi district that stretches along the southwestern coast.


A New Jersey Superior Court is slated to hold a hearing on the case on Wednesday.

Fallon also shared that D'Amico "offered to write him [Bobbitt] a check", suggesting Bobbitt abandon the lawyers, and instead, accept whatever was left of the remaining money.

While they try to figure everything out, Bobbitt can at least find solace in a detox program that his attorney has helped him get into via scholarship. Fallon said D'Amico left them no choice but to file a lawsuit.

Bobbitt denies these claims. McClure started a GoFundMe for Bobbitt to raise $10,000 to help him get on his feet.

Dow ordered the couple's attorney, Ernest Badway, to tell his clients, who were not in court, that they must appear before her September 14 after giving sworn depositions on the matter next Monday morning at Badway's law office.

Eventually, the relationship soured sometime after Bobbitt received roughly $75,000 of the funds.

It's unclear how or who spent all the money. He was very successful at a methadone clinic before, she said.

"When there is a dispute, we work with all parties involved to ensure funds go to the right place", GoFundMe's statement read.

"I pulled over to the side of the road as far as I could and I was going to get out and walk to the nearest gas station because it was not that far away, and that's when I met Johnny", she said.

In an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, McClure said she and D'Amico did what they could to help Bobbitt.

And Bobbitt told the Inquirer that D'Amico gambled away some of the GoFundMe money at a casino in Philadelphia.

McClure and D'Amico have denied any wrongdoing.

Mr Bobbitt claims the couple spent money on holidays and a new BMW.

Bobbitt is said to be devastated. He previously told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he didn't misuse the funds, yet admitted that he spent around $500 of it on gambling.

‘Gay sex is not a crime,’ says Supreme Court in historic judgement
Only unnatural sexual offences against minors and animals (read sodomy and bestiality) are now criminal in the country. He pointed out that Section 377 fell under the " Unnatural Offences " chapter in the IPC.


In August, Bobbitt told Philadelphia newspaper The Inquirer that he had only received a portion of the funds that were donated for him and that he feared the couple had mishandled the rest of what he was owed.
