Real Estate Scammer Claims He’s Too Fat For Prison
Wait, we weren’t aware that obese peeps got a prison pass?!?
According to WESH Orlando:
A real estate swindler who claims he’s too morbidly obese to begin serving his federal prison term got no sympathy from a judge Tuesday. James Olivos pleaded guilty and was sentenced in December to serve five years and pay back almost $3 million after admitting he ran a multimillion-dollar real estate scam.
He’s missed three dates to surrender to prison alleging medical conditions. He says he can’t begin serving his sentence because he won’t get the right treatment for his obesity. “Do you still contend you are too morbidly obese?” WESH 2’s Bob Kealing asked Olivos outside the courtroom. “Yes, I am sir. Thank you very much,” said Olivos.
Olivos had a litany of medical reasons explaining why he missed dates to surrender to prison: rectal bleeding, coughing up blood, pain in his feet and ADHD for which he took Ritalin at 15 years old. Magistrate Karla Spaulding said Tuesday she saw no proof of those conditions, and he was given 48 hours to produce medical records. She accused Olivos of “stalling to avoid prison.”
“I don’t see anything that confirms these complaints,” she said. WESH 2 legal analyst Richard Hornsby says it’s common for criminals to try to stall or talk their way out of the consequences of their actions.
