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.

On July 24th, 2014 the Department of Child Protective Services (DCPS) was contacted by a local hospital concerning the recent, suspicious birth given by a fourteen year old girl.  The young girl had given birth at home, in a bath tub.  After giving birth the daughter was then taken to the hospital by her father.  The report, which stated the newborn child was the outcome of a rape incident, would soon be proven wrong.  The DCPS contacted officers referring to the incident as a sex offense.  When the officers arrived on scene, they took DNA swabs from both the daughter and the newborn child.  DNA swabs were also taken from the father later that afternoon.  On August 8th, 2014 the DNA results came back proving the father was the biological parent of the newborn child, as well as the biological parent of the daughter who gave birth.  The test results proved a 99.99% match.  The father was arrested for both Incest and Statutory Rape.  We are very excited to have special guests Lieutenant Matt Brotherton and Assistant CW Attorney Aspen Carlisle joining us on the show tomorrow! Tune into American DA Live, this Friday May 22nd, to hear the full case report.
