As Lawyer Roesser Pled to Bankruptcy Fraud He Wants Time Served US Wants 15 Months

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 27 – John Roesser, an attorney, was indicted for filing false bank records in this own bankruptcy case, to keep driving his Aston Martin Rapide sports car, among other things.

  On September 12, 2023, he came to plead guilty before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Analisa Torres. Inner City Press was there. 

 Judge Torres noted that Roesser has also pled guilty in state court, to improperly "converting" the escrow of a home sale.

Roesser, speaking for himself, said it was the sale of his mother's house to a family friend, that he left the friend use the escrow "but then he died."

    In this case, he admitted falsifying records to make it appear he had $9.5 million he didn't have. The plea deal is for 18 to 24 months.

On January 19, Roesser's Federal Defender wrote in asking for time served.

On January 26, the US Attorney's Office asked for 15 months.

 The case is US v. Roesser, 23-cr-155 (Torres)
