ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) A Federal jury has convicted a Christiansburg woman on Bankruptcy Fraud Charges.
Susan Annette Reedy, 56, was found guilty by a federal jury this week on two counts of making a false declaration in a bankruptcy proceeding, two counts of concealment of property in a bankruptcy proceeding and three counts of false testimony in a bankruptcy proceeding according to a spokesperson for U.S. Department of Justice.
Reedy also went by the alias “Susani Aneti Anisahoni,” according to the court spokesperson.
A statement from court indicates Assistant United States Attorney Joseph W. H. Mott argued during Reedy's trial that she filed Chapter 7 bankruptcies in 2012 and 2014 seeking to eliminate tax debts
In those filings, Reedy omitted assets from their bankruptcy schedules and concealed assets from the bankruptcy trustee, including bank accounts, vehicles, and real property totaling over a million dollars, Mott argued in court.
At a creditors’ meeting in December 2014, Mott said Reedy falsely testified about her sources of support and assets, claiming that she had no assets and was living off of barter and babysitting. Her husband, Regan Wayne Reedy, was convicted of the same charges at a separate trial in September, a court spokesperson said.
An investigation of Reedy's case was conducted by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the U. S. Trustees’ Office. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph W. H. Mott prosecuted the case for the United States.
