Casey Crowther learns his sentence for COVID-19 relief fraud tomorrow
LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Casey Crowther, the Lee County businessman who has been found guilty of COVID-19 relief fraud, will learn his prison sentence on Tuesday, June 28.
Crowther could be sentenced to a total of 140 years in prison for bank fraud, providing a false statement to a lending institution, and two counts of illegal monetary transaction.
Federal prosecutors accused Crowther of using coronavirus relief funds meant for his company, Target Roofing, to buy a house in Saint James City. Prosecutors also showed evidence to prove Crowther used PPP proceeds to buy a boat worth about $700,000.
Last week, the judge denied Crowther’s motion for acquittal.
Crowther is expected in federal court for sentencing at 10 a.m. His legal team submitted a sentencing memorandum asking for a “period of time” with supervised release and restrictions like home confinement and work release.
