Toure of Senegal Laundered Welfare Checks Through Bank of America Sentencing in August

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 6 – Sekhou Toure pleaded guilty from jail on May 6 to bank fraud; he will be sentenced in August.

Back in August 2018 he deposited $26,000 of NYC Human Resources Administration checks that weren't his in accounts in Bank of America and TD Bank in Manhattan, and withdrew the money from ATMs on 149th Street in The Bronx. 

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni asked Toure, Are you a U.S. citizen?  

Yes, he said.  

Judge Caproni asked, Where were you born?   

Toure said, West Africa... Senegal. My father was a U.S. citizen.  

His co-defendants include Salifou Conde, Aboubakar Bakayoko and Sylvain Gnali Gnahore. The case is US v. Toure, 19-cr-808 (Caproni).
