Man Charged With Bank Fraud Who Got Job At Big Apple Circus Is Given 2d Chance in SDNY

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 13 – A man charged with bank fraud but out on bail and with a job at the Big Apple Circus faced remand to prison on January 13 for not returning when he was supposed to to his mother's house.

Kizzito Chukwujekwu used the name Jerry Martins to own bank accounts to which companies were fraudulently induced to send funds, according to the initially seal complaint from September 2019.

U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katherine H. Parker told Chukwujekwu that it was good he'd found the job in the circus that when he was locked out of his mother's home, to which it he is supposed to return each night, he should contact Pre Trial Services.

    Speaking for himself, Chukwujekwu replied that his Pre Trial Services officer has been away on holiday and he had not wanted to e-mail the general Pre Trial Services e-mail box. You have to communicate better, Judge Parker said, adding that it would help with his sentencing if he is, in fact, found guilty.

     At the bond hearing Chukwujekwu was linked to e-mail financial scams from Nigeria; the Bank of Ghana was cited as an example. The case is US v. Chukwujekwu, 19-mj-8273 (Parker).
