Source www.sbsun.com Sissoko faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison for each count if convicted, the release says.
Road Doctor California is a business “that purports to repair potholes,” the release says. “The impermissible uses also included a non-refundable down payment of approximately $100,000 to purchase a company located in New Hampshire, and the attempted transmission of approximately $150,000 to accounts in the African nation of Mauritania associated with a minerals exploration company for which Sissoko purports to serve as CEO,” the DOJ news release says.
It’s unclear whether the business exists beyond a document filed with the California Secretary of State’s Office that says the company was founded on Dec. 5, 2019. The document lists the company’s street address as a post office in downtown Los Angeles. No website or phone number could be found for the company in a search of the internet. The indictment alleges that Sissoko, instead of spending all of the money on the payroll and other expenses for Road Doctor California, bought a luxury car for more than $100,000, paid off a loan on a different luxury car and purchased a computer for almost $6,000.
