Authorities have said Katelyn McClure and her then-boyfriend Mark D’Amico raised about $400,000 from donors, purportedly to aid homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt — claiming Bobbitt had given McClure his last $20 to help McClure buy gas for her car.
But investigators later accused McClure and D’Amico of using the donated cash to purchase vehicles and pay for gambling trips to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, N.J., Philadelphia’s KYW-TV reported.
McClure’s sentencing hearing was initially scheduled for Friday but was postponed for an undisclosed reason. No new date has been set.
