He is not yet in state prison but will be going there. I do believe there is a charge pending, and that is why he is being held in county.

I doubt there is, otherwise, they wouldn't have passed a sentence.

Well "Jennifer" it sounds like you weren't in court by chance..I would say you knew him..

I'd met him in the mall where the local radio station is on days he had a spot. I worked in that mall. I was in court by chance with a relative who had to appear.

I do feel bad for the kids. I have to wonder if his wife was in on it in some way.

The wife was in on it for sure. They were smart enough to make sure she would not be implicated for the sake of the kids.
soooo sad

How can you know that wife was in on it? I heard she left him right after he got out of jail in January?

What makes you think his brother was involved?

He has a brother?

And, Soooo sad, everything was in the wife's name. Sure, she may have left after he was arrested in January, etc.

But. like Insider said, was to make it seem like she wasn't

let it be known, not only is he a thief and con man, but also a family wrecker.
I hope he enjoys his "new" family in prison!

His brother, Mitchell is just as bad. He too is a professional con man, a liar and a cheat! His poor ex-wife, what I saw her go through with him starting on the honeymoon. Needless to say, she threw him out of the house for cheating and extorting money from her. He can talk his way out of anything. He never stops lying and cheating. He lives with someone now and cheats on her all the time. Poor thing! Their mother is also an idiot. She knows they are both sick and has never tried to get them the help they need.

Mr. Brie is a liar and a cheat. He does not do ANYTHING that he thinks will not benefit himself. His brother is from the same mold and will probable end up as Gregg did.
