Court: United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana (Orleans Parish)
Plaintiff's Attorney: United States Attorney’s Office
Description: New Orleans, Louisiana criminal defense lawyer represented defendant charged with mail fraud.
Donmonick Martin, age 30, of Chalmette, conspired to defraud commercial airlines through the submission of false claims for reimbursement for lost baggage. In January 2021, MARTIN’s co-conspirator Pernell Jones, Jr. (“JONES”) took a flight to New Orleans under a fictitious identity. Shortly thereafter, MARTIN went into Louis Armstrong International Airport, assumed the same fictitious identity, and falsely told American Airlines that his bag had been lost on the flight. According to MARTIN’s plea documents, on four occasions, MARTIN agreed to accept fraudulent baggage reimbursement funds from airlines on JONES’ behalf to help JONES evade detection. In November 2021, JONES pled guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Mail Fraud, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1349 and Mail Fraud, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1341. JONES is set to be sentenced on May 19, 2022.
