Prison! Kate McClure's stunning public fall complete as 'homeless vet' GoFundMe scamster

Kate McClure’s stunning public fall complete as ‘homeless vet’ GoFundMe scamster agrees to spend years in prison


Kate McClure, the New Jersey woman who spun a tale of a homeless veteran who had helped her, but later admitted the story behind her fundraising was a sham, pleaded guilty Monday for a second time to lying in the scheme that raised $400,000.

McClure, dressed in black, appeared in Burlington County Superior Court before Judge Christopher Garrenger with her parents and pleaded guilty to a second-degree charge of theft by deception. The state has recommended she serve four years in prison for the offense.

The 28-year-old had already admitted to lying when creating the fundraiser. In March, she entered a guilty plea to a charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and is facing 27 to 33 months in federal prison.

Her attorney, James Gerrow, told reporters gathered outside the courthouse he hopes the judges will keep his client out of jail, and that they will have compassion for her, as there is “a lot more at play” involving her relationship with her ex-boyfriend and co-defendant, Mark D’Amico, which was allegedly marked by domestic violence.

2. Yes, what she did was wrong and she should be punished

but if 27 -33 months is going to be the standard for scamming the public, trump & his ilk should do at least ten times the amount.
