Couple Charged For Spending Over $100k In Accidental Deposit

2

A Pennsylvania couple who police say went on a spending spree after a bank accidentally deposited $120,000 into their account are headed to trial.

State police tell the Williamsport Sun-Gazette that Robert and Tiffany Williams, of Montoursville, spent most of the money on items like an SUV, a race car, two four-wheelers, and a camper. Police say the couple also paid bills and gave friends $15,000.

BB&T bank contacted the couple June 20 after realizing the error, telling the couple they were responsible for returning the funds. After they failed to repay the money, the bank took legal action.

The couple faces felony theft charges.

As they arrived at court Monday, Robert Williams told WNEP-TV they “took some bad legal advice” and “it probably wasn’t the best thing in the end.”

No trial date was set.

    Trump, the man that said getting the country out of debt would be “easy.” (The day before he announced his candidacy for the presidency) has now doubled the annual deficit to over $1 trillion a year.
    Perhaps it wasn’t such a great idea to hand the reins of the country to a man with multiple bankruptcies.

    At least Democrats spend it on bettering peoples lives rather than ballooning defense budgets and “space forces”
