The Johnny Bobbitt story was a scam from the start

FILE Johnny Bobbitt left with couple Kate Mc Clure and Mark D'Amico

It raised more than $400,000.

Katelyn McClure and Mark D'Amico had started a GoFundMe campaign for a then homeless Bobbitt after they claimed he spent his last $20 helping Katelyn when her auto broke down in Philadelphia.

All three face charges of conspiracy and theft by deception for working together to create the alleged ruse.

The New Jersey couple who became famous for raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for a homeless man after he helped with their disabled vehicle - as did the homeless man himself - will all face charges for allegedly providing a false story in order to raise money for themselves, a source familiar with the case told NBC10.

Bobbitt bought McClure gas late one night when she was stranded in Philadelphia, the couple claimed. The effort raised $400,000.

Attorneys for Bobbitt tell FOX 29 they were informed by the defense team after the ruling that the money was gone.

LeBron James has monster game, passes Wilt Chamberlain on all-time scoring list
He had 26 points and his season high of 12 rebounds in a 128-119 loss at Portland in the season opener on October 18. Walton said he wasn't certain of how Rondo suffered the injury or the exact nature of it.

The overwhelming response led to donations from more than 14,000 well wishers, but the couple's relationship with Mr Bobbitt eventually soured as they accused him of using the money to feed a drug habit.

Bobbitt lived for a short time on the couple's property in a camper purchased for him but later was told to leave and became homeless again.

McClure and D'Amico have repeatedly denied any wrongdoing or misusing any of the money. Her boyfriend, Mark D'Amico, set up a GoFundMe account for Bobbitt.

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina said he will announce developments in its investigation today, but did not disclose details.

D'Amico has said Bobbitt spent $25,000 in less than two weeks in December on drugs, in addition to paying overdue legal bills and sending money to his family.
