  1. He deserves what’s coming to him. That’s down right evil. Karma is a B–ch…hope he gets a long time in max fed prison, then right back a yard.

    • He doesn’t have a clue about the law in the US for some one who was on the air in JA didn’t expect that from him .

      • For real, he will find out for sure…

      • GLITHO, I saw your comment to me before UI took it off. Don’t ever comment to me again. The name u r using sound to me like a reptile that’s what u r and I hate reptiles. I have my opinion and I will say what I feel. Maybe u r scamming too and if so I wish the same for u. And worse for I wish life in prison when you r caught. B—H.

  2. If u get a plea deal take it do your time and go back home . Learn your lesson from been a thief / scammer .

  3. Most yardies are idiots when it comes to lucrative crimes, he is done.

  4. If this dumb ass thinks he is going to play with the United States government he makes a sad mistake . If he is involved or what the Feds saying is true he needs to do time . Stealing from old folks is sickening . He has a good atty to get a trial so quickly . I don’t feel sorry for him .
