Aussie Robin Hood will defend himself
Corey Donaldson, 39, received permission from U.S. District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson to defend himself on felony charges of bank robbery stemming from a New Year’s Eve heist at U.S. Bank in downtown Jackson. According to a court transcript obtained by JH Weekly, Judge Johnson said the defendant seemed “competent, literate and intelligent” and understood the dangers of self-representation to his satisfaction.
The self-help guru originally from Melbourne, Australia, stands accused of stealing an unidentified amount of money from the bank. Sources have told JH Weekly the amount totals more than $140,000. Donaldson was arrested in Clinton, Utah on January 22. He had $16,000 on him. He claimed later in a jailhouse interview that he gave the rest away to the needy.
Donaldson has entered a plea of not guilty and remains in custody without bail. He has published several self-help books and started at least two online consulting companies.
