As we told you last month, the beautiful Anne Hathaway's shady ex, Raffaello Follieri, was arrested and charged after he was found to have scammed several people out of millions while posing as a Vatican official.
And now, Follieri is asking the court to only sentence him to three years in prison, as opposed to the more than four years he agreed to when he admitted to scamming his friends.
But here comes the most bullshit excuse ever.
Follieri's attorney submitted papers to a Manhattan federal court on Tuesday saying that her client had "good intentions" when he created a company in order to buy church property at really cheap prices.
Yea, right. You mean, good intentions for himself!
His attorney, Flora Edwards, added that Follieri "became intoxicated with it all" after he started to socialize with some of the wealthiest and most successful people in the world.
Flora continued the nonsense by saying that poor, litte Follieri fell into the temptation of misusing people's money, only because he didn't have his own finances to live the lives of his new friends.
Wow. We can't tell who's dumber. Follieri or his hack attorney.
Follieri is scheduled to be sentenced on October 23rd.
Let's hope he gets the proper punishment.
