Thomas Lucas Jr., from Sherman, Texas, who is known as the “Disney Duper” has been given the max sentence of 17 years in the slammer. He was recently found guilty of 7 counts of wire fraud and one count of making a false statement. He has to serve three-fourths of his sentence before he is eligible for probation.

He was given a chance to speak before he was sentenced and he stated that he was ashamed and heartbroken but yet never once apologized to any of his victims. The Federal Judge told him that he caused a lot of damage and hit him with the max sentence.

In case you have not heard about what he did, he scammed investors out of $28 million dollars. He did this by showing them fake pictures and documents of a Disney theme park the he said was going to be built near Celina.

He scammed 2 groups of people. Some bought over priced land and some bought options to buy the land. The second group was scammed out of over $8 million. He was also ordered to pay $8,456,360 in restitution to victims that invested in options to purchase land.
