On December 29, 2021, a non-DOJ Individual was arrested pursuant to a superseding Indictment charging him with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.  Joseph Eventino DeLeon was indicted in the Northern District of Texas.  According to the superseding Indictment, from in or about November 2015 through in or about August 2019, DeLeon conspired with a former FBI Special Agent, William Roy Stone, Jr., who was previously indicted and arrested on May 27, 2021, to engage in a scheme to defraud and deceive a female victim by convincing her that she was under federal probation; that she was under the supervision of Stone and DeLeon; that she was obligated to pay Stone’s expenses associated with supervising her probation and that she should also compensate DeLeon for his efforts in supervising her probation; and that if she did not comply, she would go to prison and her children would be taken away from her. According to the Indictment, as a result of Stone’s and DeLeon’s deception, the victim gave Stone approximately $700,000 in money and property and gave DeLeon more than $50,000 in money and property.  The investigation is being conducted by the OIG’s Dallas Field Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety – Texas Rangers Company “B;” forensic assistance was provided by the OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office.
