Jose Manuel Camacho Jr, the disgraced fraudster Miami lawyer arrested last Fall, who admitted to forging 7 Broward County Florida judge's signatures on multiple structured settlement transfer orders, will be changing his plea, and will be sentenced on August 26, 2016.
Camacho, the now disbarred lawyer is charged with multiple count 3rd degree felonies for Uttering a Forged instrument in a bizarre series of events leave one scratching one's head. Among the bizarro revelations surrounding the case were the arresting agency employing Camacho's ex-wife and whited out notary signatures and forgeries that weren't even close.
The structured settlement secondary market did its best to keep the forgeries under wraps for 3 months before I busted it open on this blog in early January 2016. Coming on the heels of the 100+ New York forged structured settlement transfer orders involving an employee of New York City's Paris & Chaiken the Camacho forgeries were an unmitigated PR disaster.
