Providence, RI - Pawtucket Resident Sentenced for Concealing Assets from Bankruptcy Court
A Pawtucket resident was sentenced to two years probation, the first six months to be served with electronic monitoring and an overnight curfew, for concealing $18,000 when petitioning the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for bankruptcy protection.
At sentencing, Marcus A. Collier, 47, was also ordered by U.S. District Court Chief Judge William E. Smith to perform 100 hours of community service and to pay a fine of $4,000.
At the time of his guilty plea on April 27, 2018, Collier admitted to the Court that on March 18, 2016, knowing he was facing a garnishment of $18,000 in savings by a creditor, he purposefully withdrew the cash from his bank account, and filed a bankruptcy petition, failing to disclose the existence of the $18,000 in cash and thereby concealing those assets.
Collierís sentence is announced by United States Attorney Stephen G. Dambruch, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division Harold H. Shaw, and William Harrington, U.S. Trustee for Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, and New Hampshire.
The matter was investigated by the FBI, with the assistance of the U.S. Trustee.
