Homeless Samaritan will get cash; couple under investigation

While the legal battle continues over almost a half-million dollars in online donations for a homeless Samaritan, the crowdfunding platform that hosted the campaign is vowing the Philadelphia man will get his money. She set up a GoFundMe page for him, which raised $400,000.
"GoFundMe has given $US20,000 to a bank account created by Johnny's legal team to provide assistance during the investigation", Whithorne said.
GoFundMe has announced it will give $400,000 to a homeless veteran who has been fighting to receive funds raised for him by a New Jersey couple.
Chris Fallon, an attorney representing Bobbitt, told NBC Philadelphia this week that he was "shocked" and "appalled" to learn during a call with the couple's attorneys that the more-than $402,000 they raised was completely gone.
It's the latest drama in a story we've been covering for you.
The crowdfunding company also emphasised that its refund policy guarantees that "in the rare case that GoFundMe, law enforcement or a user finds campaigns are misused, donors and beneficiaries are protected".
Law enforcement officials offered little information about the criminal investigation.

"As of this time, there have been no charges filed", Burlington County Prosecutor Scott A. Coffina said in a statement on Thursday. The pair said they are withholding the rest of the money until he is off drugs.
"If they flee, they're taking the money with them", Jacqueline Promislo, one of Bobbitt's attorneys, told the Inquirer. They could not be reached for comment Thursday morning.
Bobbitt's story made headlines on Thanksgiving in 2017 when he gave McClure his last $20 for gas after her vehicle ran out of fuel in a rough Philadelphia neighborhood.
Bobbitt walked a few blocks to buy McClure gas.
"They went on shopping sprees", she told the paper. TV news footage showed D'Amico whiffing a golf club on the lawn as officers carried boxes of evidence out of his house.
WPVI reports investigators searched a BMW in the driveway of the New Jersey home of Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico. The couple were home at the time of the search.
"He's homeless and penniless", Promislo said about Bobbitt in an interview with The Post last week.
Neither the couple nor Bobbitt was in court Wednesday. The couple has denied any wrongdoing and say Bobbitt received $200,000 and that $150.000 remains in an account established for him. Their lawyer says they plan to assert their 5th Amendment rights.
The attorney for McClure and D'Amico declined to confirm that the money is gone and noted that the couple agreed to allow a forensic accountant to go through their records to determine where the money went.
Last week, Bobbitt filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of New Jersey in Burlington County against McClure and D'Amico, 39, claiming the couple has spent much of the donated funds on personal expenses, including lavish vacations and gambling excursions. Bobbitt, whose attorney says he is entering a drug addiction program, will also be deposed.
Dow on Wednesday ordered the couple's attorney, Ernest Badway, to turn over donation spending records on Friday - expedited from an earlier order to do so by Monday - and revised her order that they surrender any unspent money.
