Reginald Anthony Glenn is a 50 year old architect living in Houston, employed by EDI Architectural Firm for the past 2 years and had lived in the Washington D.C. area fifteen years prior, working in his profession. He is the father of two daughters ages 23 and 12 and a devout Christian with no prior criminal record. Divorced for the past 5 years, in January 2006 Mr. Glenn decided to enlist a dating service, where he met 35 year old known con artist Jocelyn Diad.

Ms. Diad explained to Mr. Glenn she needed his assistance in collecting monies due her from a lawsuit. Taking the bait Mr. Glenn agreed to help. He arranged for the purchase of a lavish home, cars were bought, other real estate investments and the relocation of Ms. Diad??s family from St. Louis to Houston. When the time came to close the deal on the house, Mr. Glenn was told by Ms. Diad that her ??attorneys? would be wiring funds to the title company Pinnacle Title. When said funds were in place, real estate agent Rosemary Hoyt indicated she would notify Mr. Glenn. What ensued from here was a series of events that point to scams, con artistry and the victimization and innocence of Mr. Glenn.

What happened, a wire transfer was made directly to Pinnacle Title. Mr. Glenn was then called in to close on the home. The wire was more than the purchase of the home, therefore Pinnacle Title then issued a refund to Mr. Glenn of the overage.

One month passed and Mr. Glenn and Ms. Diad were enjoying the benefits of their new found wealth. On April 5th, 2006 Pinnacle Title contacted Mr. Glenn requesting a copy of the wire for funds that they received and indicated a mistake had been made. Pinnacle Title claimed they mistakenly put someone else's wire into Mr. Glenn's account that should have gone into the account of another client and that he had 10 days to return any and all assets acquired with the proceeds in question. On day two Mr. Glenn was contacted by investigative prosecutor Mike Kelly and arrested. When asked during the trial why Mike Kelly did not honor the 10 day time to act granted to Mr. Glenn by Warren King of Pinnacle Title, Mike Kelly??s response was ??I knew it was fraud? with no evidence of any intent.

Mr. Glenn willingly turned everything back to Pinnacle Title; the home, the vehicles, over $200k in cash, the real estate investment and furnishings from the house. To date Pinnacle Title has not itemized what exactly had been turned over to them. The home builder McVaugh Homes has since discontinued their business relationship with Pinnacle Title. Ms. Diad left Houston and cannot be found. A warrant is currently out for her arrest.
