The “Evil Twin” defense? One big misunderstanding? Claude Allen’s lawyers are going to have to work harder than that.
The Washington Post reported today that Claude Allen admitted that he was committing fraudulent returns when he was initially caught by a store manager. They cited a “charging document.”
Well, we have the charging document here. Read it for yourself. It makes for a pretty devastating case against Allen, since he was caught on video making the returns – and this can be matched up with his credit card records.
On Claude’s admission, the document reads “Allen had receipts from previous purchases at Target stores and admitted to Agent Schomburg [a “Target loss prevention manager,” according to the Post] that he was committing fraudulent returns.”
Seems pretty clear to me.
