IN FORMA PAUPERIS: That’s Latin For “Broke-Ass”


I've heard of “in loco parentis”, but no affidavit of indecency. More likely, the sealed document Roy Bradley's attorney filed with the Sixth Circuit yesterday was an “affidavit of indigency” submitted after a liquid lunch. 

A defendant has a Sixth Amendment right to counsel upon demonstration of indigency. An affidavit demonstrating financial inability is normally completed during the initial appearance in the case. 

According to the docket below, excerpted from Roy Bradley's appeal of his tax fraud convictions to the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, Bradley's attorney filed an “indecent” document yesterday, September 25, under seal. In addition, Bradley's attorney filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis.

Call me crazy, but it in the months before entering prison in early July, Roy Bradley and his wife, Tammy, had enough cash money to come out of pocket with nearly $12,000 in property taxes to redeem several of their properties from the brink of tax forfeiture foreclosure. 

Doesn't sound like they were on the yawning abyss of inevitable paupery, does it?
For example, official Bay County Register of Deeds records reveal that Roy and Tammy plunked down $4,767.02 on March 22, 2017 to snatch their Center Avenue home from the snapping jaws of tax foreclosure.

And about a month later, on April 27, 2017, $2,952.89 was paid by the duo to redeem 510 Columbus Avenue, a building transferred to Roy and Tammy Bradley on February 7, 2012 under mysterious circumstances by Steven Ingersoll.

It's too bad the so-called “affidavit of indecency” was filed under seal. 

It sounds a lot more interesting than this plain old vanilla financial form.

But the feds may have the last laugh on the Bradleys: on July 12, 2017, a month before Roy Bradley left home to check into the Grey Bar Hotel, they slapped a $54,235.52 judgment on his and Tammy's Center Avenue pad. 

Welcome to the jungle, baby, it gets worse here every day! 


  1. They filed it under seal because they are liars Liars liars and they know they would be exposed

  2. That $54,235.52 must be for the monies Bradley owes the government for the workers? Thanks for staying on top of things, Miss Fortune!

    1. The $54K is owed by Bradley as back taxes and penalties for his tax evasion conviction. The case against Bradley did not charge him with any counts regarding money he owes to any of the laborers who worked on his projects.

    2. Thank you, Miss Fortune. Sad that Ingersoll was ordered to pay so little compared to Bradley.

    3. It's a shame that the feds didn't put a lien on Ingersoll's properties.

  3. I just don't think it is right that people are able to transfer their money and homes to family members right before they get sentenced. If he owned and had bank accounts at the time of getting caught that is what should be considered his worth. Ingersoll and Bradley just hid their money and the court system let them. Sham on you for not doing the right thing.

  4. Ingersoll yet has to amend his tax returns I'm sure it is not over for him yet

  5. That's funny! Ingersoll could not possibly figure out his own records remember sloppy bookkeeping deleted QuickBooks dead accountant no freaking way could he figure that out LOL and I really doubt if the fence will even take the time to figure it out it's such a mess

    1. Everything Ingersoll does becomes a mess for others. He does nothing but deceive, coverup and use. Wouldn't trust him ever.
