Krishelle Layton Bound Over For Trial On Fraud Charge
The case involving a Casper woman who is accused of defrauding donors out of money for her son who was supposedly near death, is moving forward.
Prosecutors say not long after Layton and her son, also known as Ninja Dorian, moved to Casper, she began telling a number of charitable donors that her son had terminal brain cancer, and was near death's door.
In some instances, she contacted the organizations and in others, the organizations contacted her, but Layton's defense says she did not make contact with anyone.
Upon contacting the examining doctor, the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigations learned, that the brain tumor that Ninja Dorian had, was not terminal and prosecutors stated that a recent scan showed the tumor was no longer present.
Further investigations by the DCI shows that of the money raised through various fund raisers for Ninja Dorian, no receipts were turned in to show what it was spent on.
Layton is free on $2,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
