The US was recently rocked by the story of Jose Amid Juarbe who stole 8 Lehigh Valley resident identities in his quest to attain penis enlargement surgery.
Reputed to have spent over $88,000 in loans, housing furnishings and most importantly on cosmetic surgery, Juarbe was not alone in this scam.
After buying personal information from former Allenton woman, Carniola Santana, Juarbe provided 3 of these stolen identities to co-defendants Manual Delarosa, Maria Lopez and Bendenissi Feliciano who used these identities to receive similar penis enlargement and breast enhancement surgeries.
However despite Juarbe’s clear emotive reasons for committing this crime - namely helping his penis to function properly - this is not the first time he has committed fraud.
Charged with theft, writing bad checks, forgery and theft by deception, this is Juarbe’s 27th conviction…
What charges will they face?
Whilst Lopez, Santana and Feliciano are still awaiting trial (which shall take place next month), Juarbe has been sentenced to at least 18 years imprisonment where upon release he will have to pay a minimum of $300 a month until he has completely repaid the money he stole.
Delarosa on the other hand has been placed on an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program where he has been ordered to repay $12,000 in restitution for the cost of his penis enlargement surgery.
Why penis enlargement surgery?
Admittedly, there are safer, more cost effective measures Juarbe could have taken to attain his dreams of permanent penis enlargement.
Easily described as the riskiest form of penile enhancement around, penis enlargement surgery involves cutting the suspensory and fundiform ligament found on the pubic bone. Once released, you can expect to witness penis growths of 2-3cm.
