Homeless Man Who Was Part Of GoFundMe Scam Sentenced
Gizmodo reports the man at the center of a bizarre GoFundMe campaign conspiracy was sentenced on Friday to five years of probation.
Johnny Bobbitt Jr. became famous overnight in October 2017, when Kate McClure started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for him.
McClure claimed that Bobbitt used his last $20 to buy her gas when she ran out on an interstate in New Jersey.
The campaign went viral and McClure and her boyfriend Mark D’Amico made several TV appearances.
