BREAKING NEWS! Ingersoll Sentencing Delayed; Now Set For September 24, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.
An order issued just moments ago by U. S. District Judge Thomas L. Ludington granted a motion hearing delay to Steven Ingersoll and partner in crime Roy Bradley. In addition, the order pushes back the duo's sentencing on federal fraud charges from June 16 to September 24 at 2:00pm.
Some background: on March 24, Ingersoll and Bradley jointly filed a motion for judgment of acquittal. In addition to requesting a judgment of acquittal, the motion requested additional time to file supplemental briefing, stating that certain trial transcripts had not yet been completed.
On April 13, government prosecutors filed a motion to hold briefing in abeyance and to adjourn the motion hearing based on Ingersoll and Bradley's (I'll just call them "IngerBrad"!) intent to file supplemental briefing. In its motion, the government explained that holding briefing in abeyance pending completion of the trial transcripts would conserve resources because the parties would not need to file multiple rounds of briefing.
Ludington's order directed IngerBrad to file their (its?) supplemental briefing within fourteen days after the requested trial
transcripts are completed and filed on the docket.
In addition, the government’s motion to hold in abeyance was granted, and a response is expected after IngerBrad file their (its?) supplemental briefing.
It looks like Ingersoll, whose criminal defense attorney Martin E. Crandall had the stones to claim the convicted felon can no longer maintain his multiple Bay City properties "due to his now-limited ability to earn a living following the prosecution and conviction, still has plenty of dough available to pay that $600.00 an hour mouthpiece!
Do you suppose Ingersoll's cash is stuffed in a mattress, hidden under a floorboard in the Perry House...or just locked in a safe next to his duplicate U. S. Passport?
The hearing for IngerBrad's motion for a judgment of acquittal and the government's motion for a restraining order are now set for July 23 at 4:00pm.
And IngerBrad's sentencing has been rescheduled from June 16 to September 24, with Steven Ingersoll set to go in front of Judge Ludington at 2:00pm, followed by Roy Bradley at 2:30pm.
