MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. — Johnny Bobbitt Jr. was sentenced Friday to five years on special probation and ordered to enroll in a long-term, live-in drug rehabilitation program after admitting to his role in a $402,706 GoFundMe scam.

Bobbitt and his coconspirators solicited funds from more than 14,000 donors across the country with a fraudulent Good Samaritan story, prosecutors said. He still faces federal charges in the scheme.
