Once a scammer, always a scammer, I suppose. Daryl Simon had a brilliant idea to persuade the judge into giving him a lighter sentence for defrauding people: provide photos of himself doing charity work.
The problem? He photoshopped himself into the photos:
Daryl Simon's bald-faced move included sticking a picture of himself into a shot with a physical-therapy patient, then flipping the image and placing it next to a teen student.
"Evidence that his image was inserted and flipped can be seen by examining the single detail on his shirt above his fingers -- that detail appears on the left side of the shirt in the top photograph, and on the right side of the shirt in the bottom photograph," prosecutors wrote.
Another particularly heartless snapshot shows the 38-year-old scammer purportedly comforting a sickly patient struggling during a rehabilitation exercise.
Simon even had the gall to submit fake letters of support from various charitable organizations and individuals, according to the US Attorney's Office.
