After Bank Fraud 11 Credit Cards 8 With Different Names Leads To 6 Months in Jail

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 8 – Jonathan Pettiford was convicted of bank fraud and then out on supervised release.

 He was found with 11 credit cards, eight of them with different names (and one, from Wells Fargo, with a name not matching that on its magnetic strip). 

 On September 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel held a sentencing. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Pettiford spoke movingly for himself, about wanting to get back to his children, and businesses he has run, from repairing junker cars to, now, hair weaves. 

  Judge Castel sentenced him to six months, minus time already served.

The case is US v. Pettiford, 17-cr-301 (Castel)
