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