Leslie Holmes

Leslie Randolph Holmes of Upper Marlboro ran a scam financial service called “Christian Financial Services,” and used it to bilk a Waldorf, MD veteran out of $200k.  What’s sad is that the veteran met Holmes at a church function.  Holmes has been charged with felony theft.

Owner of Montgomery Mechanical Services, Richard Stewart of Mitchellville plead guilty in a plea agreement with the Dept. of Justice to not truthfully accounting or paying $3,969,337 of Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) taxes and federal income tax withholdings.  His plea deal includes restitution.  Sentencing is scheduled for April 2012.

Marcus Canty of Bowie, MD, was voted off X-Factor this week but unlike most others, he held up, was encouraging, and seems completely alright.
