PAY THE DAMN $505 FILING FEE, ALREADY! Roy Bradley Cries Poor Mouth, But Owns Property Worth At Least $155,000! (Or Was It $282,595...Or Maybe $528,000?)

BREAKING NEWS Roy Bradley, convicted (along with his co-defendant Steven Ingersoll) in March 2015 of tax evasion, is not a pauper.

And he's been moved from a prison in Milan, Michigan, to another corrections institution in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Bradley filed an appeal back in June of his tax fraud conviction in the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

In a June 21, 2017 affidavit, Bradley listed three Bay City, Michigan, properties:

1700 Center Avenue (Bradley's residence) $100,000
1016 14th Street $20,000
510 Columbus Avenue $35,000

The Columbus property houses Bradley's Thunder Cycle shop and his wife's used car business.

Steven Ingersoll originally purchased the property for $25,000 on March 10, 2010 and then “sold” (ahem) it to Bradley for $35,000. Word on the street is that Ingersoll washed some money through Bradley with this purchase, and Bradley ended up not forking over any payment.

However, Bradley disclosed assets of $528,000 to his probation officer during the preparation of his January 23, 2015 Presentence Report. That report found that Bradley's net worth was $282,595, and Bradley has not made any attempt to reconcile the difference between his January 2015 disclosures and his June 21, 2017 affidavit.

So what is it with all this talk of assets, anyway?

Bradley's trying to dodge having to pay the $505 appeal filing fee, that's why.

I'll leave the last words to U. S. District Court Judge Thomas L. Ludington:

“Given his outstanding financial resources and the unexplained disparities among his various disclosures, Bradley’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal will be denied.”

August 23, 2017-Bradley is now housed in FCI Elkton, a low security federal correctional institution.


  1. He ain't no pauper, just hiding his money like Ingersoll did.

  2. He filed bankruptcy on probably 80 people not counting the ones that couldn't legally sue him,
    2017 2018 2019 20/20 20/21 2022 and finally 3 1 2023, I bet his ass thinks twice with two years of paper on top.
    A lot can happen in five years!
