Charged With Bank Fraud for Luxury Cars John Novoa Is Bailed But No Credit Cards As Car Dealership

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 27 – For a three defendant complaint about bank fraud in buying high end vehicles, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave signed a sealed complaint on December 12.

   On December 27 one of the three defendants, John Novoa was presented before SDNY Magistrate Judge Barbara Moses. He wanted to be bailed to Miami to continue working at a car dealership there name Scarlett.  

Judge Moses said, Wait a minute, don't car salesman usually college the credit card and other financial information of prospective buyers? Novoa's Criminal Justice Act lawyer Eric R. Breslin replied that Novoa just sells car, he doesn't finance them.

   But by the end of the bond proceeding, with only Inner City Press in the courtroom, Judge Moses restricted Novoa to living in his mother's house in Brooklyn and to not "possess or access credit cards, ID cards or other personal information of others."

    He was to be released on his own signature of a $75,000 bond. But along with Breslin he waited for more than an hour for Assistant US Attorney Jacob R. Fiddelman to return to sign the bond for the government. It was a slow day in the SDNY Mag Court, after the 15-defendant extravaganza of December 26. This case is US v. Lev, et al., 19-mj-11633 (Moses).
