Arenas posted on Instagram a while back about how he scammed a Strip Club out of $80k using an elaborate credit card fraud scheme.
While this was happening a financial planner was on trial for stealing money from him. He was found guilty, but the financial planner snitched to the Feds about his strip club scam in hopes of getting a new trial.
Gilbert Arenas’ Instagram post over committing fraud by screwing over American Express – to the tune of $80k – during one of his strip club visits caught the eye of the federal government — who did not approve of his alleged scheme.
However, they don’t believe it should allow his ex-personal assistant to be granted a new trial in the case he was found guilty of stealing millions from the former NBA star.
The NBA star’s former personal assistant, John A. White, was found guilty by a Florida jury last year of stealing over $2 million dollars from Arenas – who he worked for from 2006-2012.
The Feds explain that all the declarations signed by bank tellers and other
associates of Areanas aka “new evidence” presented is not new information due to the stories the people speak about all taking place before the trial and they say if he wanted to present this at his trial he should have done so initially.
In regards to Areanas’ Instagram post talking about scheming American Express out of $80k via fraud at a strip club– the government says they only recently became aware of the post. They say they do not condone the former NBA star’s activity in the message he posted or his bad behavior.
So no new trial and White has to stay in jail.
