Missouri Fraudster Pleads Guilty to Wire Fraud

According to Infozine.com, Lindsey D. Crawford, 23, of Kansas City, waived her right to a grand jury and pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Ortrie D. Smith yesterday to a federal information that charges her with conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Crawford pleaded guilty in federal court to her role in a wire fraud conspiracy involving a scheme between two women to hire a man to assault them. Crawford was hoping to force a higher settlement of her sexual harassment lawsuit against a former employer.

The purpose of the conspiracy was to fraudulently increase damages in the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Crawford against her former employer, Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City, as well as Soave Automotive Group, Inc., T.E.N. Investments, Inc., and Soave Enterprises, LLC.

Under federal statutes, Crawford is subject to a sentence of up to five years in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $250,000.
