Hey buddy, I appreciate it. Remind me, what year did we meet in NY? Seems like forever ago.
I believe it was 2008. You helped me achieve success and I’m not sure you realize how much I appreciate you.

Followed this from the start. Thinking of you,Dave. When I get home in a few days I’ll tell a couple of stories, one which involves “beating the rap” in my youth.

Keep hanging in there.

I can only reiterate what I previously posted. Sadly this is taking far too long and has got to put a strain on you and your family. You continue to be in our prayers.

I love this! The good part of the internet!

Keep your spirits up, Dave!

Plead guilty today. I'm 52 years old and never imagined I would be standing in front of a judge uttering that word. My attorney files his submission tomorrow arguing for exceptional circumstances and we return for sentencing on May 10th. Until then, ground hog day continues.

I hope the 10th brings you home.

Last October, my then 83 year old dad decided it was time to close his safe deposit box at a bank on one of those Caribbean islands. He had already closed his personal and business accounts there. He had all the US Customs forms filled out to bring the contents into the US. The laws for leaving the particular island said he had no need to declare his property or fill any forms out unless asked to do so verbally or in writing by a customs and border patrol officer. He put his bag in the X-ray machine and the guy asked if my dad had any currency. My dad said yes and told him the amount. That’s when all hell broke loose. Four agents detained my dad for three hours before they let him go to catch his flight. They kept the $60,000 in cash and gold though. We just heard today from the attorneys we hired that the Customs folks have decided they have no case and my dad is free to come back to retrieve his cash and gold.

I hope you get similar news on the 10th.

Good luck Dave. I also know how it feels to plead guilty when I have spent my whole life doing the right thing or at least trying to. I am hoping for the best come May 10th.

Trapper189, that sounds like a trap. Your dad needs to be very careful.
I just do not think it is as simple as you make it sound.

If he was my dad I would say stay at home and work something out.

Agreed. See if you can get a surrogate to do it. Local lawyer perhaps?

One, if there was really an issue, they would have arrested him then and there and not let him out of the country in the first place.

Two, my dad did nothing wrong. He followed the law to a T.

Three, the lawyers won’t touch cash. They won’t take funds drawn from a US bank. To hire them, we had the company that manages our rental properties there pay the lawyer from the funds the management company holds on our behalf at a local bank.

Four, a surrogate is possible. With a proper power of attorney, I could go get the money and gold.

Five, the attorneys, the ones we hired who are representing my dad, have said this is the real deal and there is no issue. No fines, no nothing because again, my dad did nothing wrong.

I appreciate the concern. I only posted my dad’s issue to show positive outcomes are possible which I hoped would encourage Dave in his situation.
