“Upstanding Citizen” Elton L. Bandoo, who attempted to murder North Miami Beach Police Officer Lino Diaz last February, just got his ass handed to him by the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.
According to a just released statement by U.S. Attorney Wilfredo A. Ferrer, Elton Lloyd Bandoo, a/k/a “Ebdaiceman”, was “sentenced to 84 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $585,070, for his participation in stolen identity tax and unemployment insurance claims fraud schemes.”
Not only did this thug have in his possession personal information on approximately 27,000 victims, many of them deceased, but he filed fraudulent tax returns “seeking $1,073,112 in fraudulent refunds,” and had also requested “$11,804 in unauthorized payments on nine fraudulent unemployment insurance claims.”
Bandoo’s criminal lawyer (and Phyllis Smith Campaign Donor), Seth LaVey was no match for South Florida’s Prosecutor Extraordinaire, who regularly racks up wins against the best in the business. (See Ben Kuehne-slash-Lucie Tondreau.)
After he was arrested for trying to kill Officer Diaz, Bandoo’s lawyer told the press that his client “is the victim in this case … this is a good kid.”
Here’s a news flash, Mr. LaVey: “Good kids” don’t steal identities, commit insurance fraud, or try to murder police officers!
The good news is that while Elton L. Bandoo is behind bars, there’s one less would-be cop killer on the loose.
The bad news is that … oh, wait! There is no bad news.
Except for maybe Lawyer LaVey, who won’t be getting that lawyer fee any time soon.
While Bandoo cools his heels in Wilfredo A. Ferrer’s hoosegow, his attempted first degree murder trial is still pending.
