Maxwell Wood, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced today that KATHY ELY AVANT was sentenced on May 22, 2008, to a term of 5 months in federal prison by the Honorable W. Louis Sands, Judge of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. Avant, age 38, of Fitzgerald, Georgia, pled guilty on March 7, 2008, to two counts of bankruptcy fraud, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 152. Avant was also sentenced to serve two years on supervised release and five months of home confinement.
Avant had entered into a plea agreement in which she admitted that in October 2005, she filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition approximately three weeks after transferring to her mother title to a three bedroom house in Fitzgerald. The house, which had been purchased for Avant by her grandmother in 1999 for approximately $72,000, was at the time of the bankruptcy petition being rented to a tenant for $500 per month. However, in her bankruptcy documents which Avant declared to be true and correct under penalty of perjury, Avant failed to disclose the transfer of the property as well as the income she had been receiving from it. Avant later committed perjury at a creditors’ meeting when she denied, under oath, that she had made any transfers of property in the year before filing bankruptcy.
Avant’s fraud was discovered by the bankruptcy trustee, Walter W. Kelley, who reported the crime to the United States Attorney’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney K. Alan Dasher prosecuted the case.

Never thought that chick would lie. Not. Wonder why anyone else involved with the fraud didn't get in trouble.

The subject of Kathy Ely Avant is a boring one. Ain't even worth putting up on this forum, so why bother. She did wrong and got a little punishment. They all should have got in trouble. Her mother Janice had to fork out plenty of money, so she got punished too. Besides somebody had to stay home from prison to take care of her kids and her mother raises them kids anyway. What a shame the kids have to suffer for the adults stupidity.
