ROBERT BUCKHANNON HAS A NEW NUMBER...AND IT'S NOT A PHONE NUMBER! Battle Creek's Robert Buckhannon (AKA The “Crooked Chiropractor”) Uncomfortably Ensconced In New California Home, Inmate #49426-048 To Serve 24 Month Sentence In USP Atwater


                          “I’m not a number! I am a man!”

Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator confirms Robert Buckhannon is behind bars in a federal prison.

The long road to the Grey Bar Hotel has ended for Robert Buckhannon: Battle Creek's “crooked chiropractor”, sentenced February 13, 2020 to 24 months behind bars, has officially entered the federal prison system at a facility in Atwater, California. 

Buckhannon formally struck a plea deal May 31, 2019 in U. S. District Court, agreeing to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. 

The deal stemmed from a criminal indictment filed August 8, 2018 against Buckhannon and co-defendant Kelly DeMoss. 

Buckhannon admitted his role in a scheme to defraud Blackburne & Sons Realty Capital Corporation, perpetrated with DeMoss, “to obtain money by false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises.” 

Nearly five years after a suspicious fire destroyed the On Deck, a Battle Creek sports bar, DeMoss and Buckhannon were indicted in federal court on various charges relating to a “conspiracy was to obtain money by means of false and fraudulent pretenses and representations to unlawfully enrich themselves, including by converting to their own personal use business loan proceeds fraudulently obtained from Blackburne that were intended for On Deck Sports Bar & Grill LLC”. 

Buckhannon was ordered to pay a total of $467,213.98: a $100.00 assessment, a $1,000.00 fine and $436,559.56 in total restitution to Blackburne & Sons Realty Capital Corporation and Auto-Owners Insurance. 

Upon release from federal prison, Buckhannon will be under supervised release for another 24 months.
