Husband of ‘CIA scammer’ sent to jail.
Almost a year ago now I wrote about Stacey Finley, who posed as a CIA agent who had access to secret healing technology, in order to defraud friends and family out of almost a million dollars.
On Monday her husband, Brent Eric Finley, 38, of Rayville, was sentenced to serve 51 months in prison by a federal court in Monroe.
Brent Finley was convicted of fraud for his part in convincing relatives and friends that Stacey could cure their ills, for a fee, via her access to secret satellite imaging techniques.
Stacey Finley sentenced to 63 months
The prison term will be followed by three years of supervised release. His wife, Stacey Finley, was sentenced in August to spend 63 months in prison and both are ordered to jointly pay restitution in the amount of $873,786.94.
Both Brent and Stacey Finley pleaded guilty to wire fraud in August, according to court records.
In a news release, issued by U.S. Attorney Donald W. Washington, it was stated that Brent Finley duped numerous people into believing that Stacey Finley was a CIA agent who, through her contacts, could schedule a medical scan of the victims’ bodies via satellite imaging.
They claimed that this process would detect any hidden medical problems.
Covert CIA medical team
The Finley’s then convinced their victims that if any medical conditions were discovered that they would be cured, after making suitable payment, by a CIA medical team whilst they slept.
“These audacious criminals should remind all of us that scam artists will go to great lengths to take our life’s savings,” Washington said.
