Judge orders couple behind GoFundMe account for homeless man to appear in court

2018-09-06 16:52
A couple who raised $400,000 to help a homeless man has now been ordered to appear in court. Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico of New Jersey started the fundraising account on GoFundMe. They started it after John Bobbitt, a homeless man in Philadelphia, gave McClure his last $20. But now the veteran has sued the couple, claiming they’ve used most of the money on themselves. McClure and D'Amico are accused of buying a new house, a BMW, and taking multiple vacations. Judge Paula Dow said that she wants to see the defendants in person to question them. Their lawyer said they want to protect themselves against self-incrimination by pleading the Fifth.
