Kenneth Thomas Scams Friends Out Of $3.5 Million Dollars

image4

 

Kenneth Eugene Thomas was sentenced to 20 years in jail by Judge Thomas Clark on May 22nd, 2015 for stealing over $3 million dollars. Kenneth Thomas convinced close friends from church to invest in his company, Retire America, by assuring them that they would make a large profit. Instead, Kenneth Thomas spent the money on an extravagant lifestyle for himself and his mistress.  For years, starting in 2007, he lied to half-a-dozen individuals who trusted him. These victims each lost significant amounts of money, causing dramatic financial and emotional distress in their lives. The victims’ stories are truly heartbreaking.

The 20 year sentence Kenneth Thomas received is the maximum sentence the court can impose and, unfortunately, he is eligible for parole in 4 years. This is because in the state of Kentucky, class C & D charges are eligible for parole after 20% of the time is served.
