Waldo sexual assault scammers sentenced
A federal judge sentenced the three
pea brains sexual assault scammers who cooked up — and botched — a scheme to defraud a local car dealership.
Julie Bernet, 39, of Bacyrus, Kansas, and Lindsey Crawford, 24, of KCMO, hatched a bizarre plan to gold-dig a big sexual assault settlement out of a former employer by staging an assault/sexual assault (want details?) and trying to link it to the dealership.
Bernet and Crawford paid Gordon Reabe, Jr., 52, of Lee’s Summit, $100,000 to assault them — and sexually assault one of them — in an effort to
force a higher settlement from the Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City dealership.
Now that plan is a Swiss-fucking-watch.
For his trouble, Reabe got a year and a day in federal prison without parole. Bernet received five months in a residential re-entry center and five months of house arrest. Crawford got three years probation. Each agreed to pay $5,259 to offset costs that Kansas City police incurred while investigating the non-existent crime.
