Maurice, Louisiana Couple Convicted of Perjury Charges Related to Bankruptcy Assets

"Thad Corey Theall, 52, and Theresa Theall, 51, both of Maurice, La., have been convicted by a federal jury in Lafayette, La., of perjury charges relating to bankruptcy assets, United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced.

Thad and Theresa Theall were indicted in July of 2009, in a two-count indictment: count 1, concealment of bankruptcy assets false statement under penalty of perjury; and count 2, concealment of bankruptcy assets false oaths. Testimony during trial revealed that The Theall’s filed for bankruptcy on June 16, 2005, and in relation to that Bankruptcy Petition, failed to disclose information under the bankruptcy filings which were verified under penalty of perjury. This resulted in the concealment of proceeds of approximately $100,000.00 from the sale of property located on Ambassador Caffery Parkway. It was further revealed that while under oath during a meeting of creditors before the U.S. Trustee in August of 2005, The Theall’s provided false information regarding the sale of the Ambassador Caffery Parkway property to conceal the $100,000.00 proceeds. Thad Corey Theall was found guilty on both counts, and Theresa Theall was found guilty on count 1."
