Description: St. Louis, Missouri interference with commerce by robbery criminal defense lawyer represented Clyde Jefferson, age 28, with five counts of interference with commerce by robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

Jefferson admitted that he used online marketplaces including Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, and Letgo to arrange for victims to sell him their iPhones at locations in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County. When meeting the victims, Jefferson would offer them counterfeit currency in exchange for their iPhones. Jefferson brandished a firearm during several of the transactions, which occurred on August 3, September 21, and October 8, 2018, and on January 8 and 29, 2019.

The United States alleges that Jefferson shot one of his victims, a fact which Jefferson disputes and the Court will resolve at the sentencing hearing.

This case is being investigated by the United States Secret Service, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the Richmond Heights Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Roy is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
