A couple who raised over $400,000 on GoFundMe for a homeless man has been ordered by a judge to turn over the remaining funds after they refused to give it to him, CBS Philadelphia reports. Johnny Bobbitt sued Mark D’Amico and Katie McClure for mismanaging the donation money meant for him after the couple refused to give him roughly half of the remaining cash. Officials say that D’Amico and McClure “mixed the GoFundMe money with their own,” and Bobbitt’s attorney claims that the couple only gave Bobbitt $75,000—rather than the $200,000 the couple say they gave. The money will be put into a trust where it will be “in limbo… until the case is sorted out,” and the couple has been ordered to “give an account of exactly how the money was spent” within 10 days. Bobbitt gave McClure his last $20 late last year while she was stranded on a Philadelphia interstate for gas, prompting her to start the GoFundMe to help Bobbitt. While denying Bobbitt the funds, the couple argued that he would use the money to buy drugs.
