Scam Suspect Faces Bail Bond Revocation As Home Securing His Freedom Faces Foreclosure

In Pinellas County, Florida, News Channel 8 reports:

  • Pinellas County prosecutors say when Jeffrey Maricle ran a company called Global Funding LLC, he stole a fortune from more than 50 independent truckers across the nation in an equipment-leasing scheme that turned sour three years ago. Now, because of his own failing finances, Maricle could lose his freedom while awaiting trial.

  • Maricle's attorney says the home Maricle used as collateral for his jail bond is in foreclosure. If he loses the home, the bondsman could revoke his bail. "It depends on the bonding agency," said John McGuire who represents Maricle in his ongoing criminal case.
