Couple ordered to testify about money

Mr Fallon told WPVI he found out his client's money was gone during a conference call with Ms McClure's lawyer on Tuesday.

Last week, Superior Court Judge Paula T. Dow ordered the couple to wire the remaining funds to a trust for Bobbitt, and submit an accounting report of the donated money within 24 hours.

"Mr. Bobbitt is a key material witness to where the money went to because, as I have explained to the court, the money went to Mr. Bobbitt", Badway said. Along with demanding that the pair provide a full account of where the money was spent, the judge ordered any and all remaining money to be given to Bobbitt. He said only a week earlier that $200,000 of Mr Bobbitt's money had not yet been spent. "We're really concerned about the flight risk".

When the feel-good story about a chance encounter between Johnny Bobbitt and Kate McClure that changed both their lives hit the daytime TV circuit, he said her generosity inspired an "indescribable" feeling in him.

The campaign started after Bobbitt gave McClure his last $20 after she was stranded without gas.

The ordeal began back in 2017 when McClure ran out of gas on Interstate 95 near Philadelphia and Bobbitt, who was living under a nearby bridge, came to her rescue.

"Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn't repay him at that moment because I didn't have any cash, but I have been stopping by his spot for the past few weeks", McClure wrote on GoFundMe.

GoFundMe said it is working with law enforcement to ensure that Bobbitt receives all of the almost $400,000 raised on his behalf, though his attorney says he's learned there may be nothing left after earlier disbursements. It was featured in national newspapers, including The Post. But that effort dissolved into discord as Bobbitt accused the couple of spending the money for their personal gain.

"Johnny is homeless", said Ms Promislo, "which is not a safe environment for anyone".

It's still not clear where the money went.

Mr Bobbitt brought a lawsuit to Ms McClure and Mr D'Amico, accusing them of mismanaging the donations. He told The Inquirer that money given to him by the couple in December was given to family members, and a "small amount" was spent on drugs.

Bobbitt met with a financial adviser but never had access to the money or signed paperwork for a trust, according to the Inquirer.

During discussion with Dow during the hearing Wednesday, Badway said that all the funds went to Bobbitt, which drew the ire of Dow who said the limited expedited discovery she ordered in the case was to identify where the money is and to place what remains in escrow until the court decides what to do with it.

But Bobbitt said he saw troubling signs.

Regardless, a New Jersey judge disagreed. She also took a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon.

Last week, Mr D'Amico told NBC that about $150,000 remained.

A judge ruled the money needed to be transferred to an account over the weekend. They have repeatedly denied wrongdoing. He no longer has the camper or SUV, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday. The camper they purchased for Bobbitt instead of a house was a used vehicle and it was kept in McClure's boyfriend's name anyway.

The money raised was understood to be exclusively for the benefit of Bobbitt. McClure started a GoFundMe for Bobbitt to raise $10,000 to help him get on his feet. He claimed around half of the total funds raised were either given to Bobbitt directly or spent on him.
