ROGERSVILLE, Mo. (KY3) – Attorneys urge a judge to revoke the loan on behalf of a Rogersville business owner indicted in federal court.
Michael David Dismer, 51, was indicted on August 22, 2019 by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Missouri, on 28 charges.
According to investigators, Dismer has operated at least eight different companies since 1993 (most recently Worldwide Construction, Inc. and Lakeland Marine Builders, LLC in Stockton, Missouri) that have built large boats, barges and tugs for customers around the world.
The federal indictment alleges that Dismer participated in a $ 4 million program to defraud 22 customers of his boatbuilding company from 2013 to 2018.
Dismer reportedly committed new criminal offenses while in custody on federal fraud cases in Missouri, according to court documents released Friday.
The documents cited a report of violations of the Pretrial Services by Damon Mitchell, Senior Pretrial Services Officer of the United States, dated January 28, 2021. According to the report, Dismer misrepresented a loan application for the Missouri Title Loan and withheld a portion of a customer’s refund based on claims he had already spent the withheld funds building the customer’s boat and then filed a false 2019 income tax return.
The application also alleges that Dismer improperly filed 2019 tax returns, misrepresented a loan application, and received $ 44,000 from Diversified Marine Construction in 2020.
Lawyers argue that due to his recent alleged conduct, Dismer will continue to violate the law and his liability terms if he remains out of custody pending trial.
The motion is asking a federal court to revoke Dismer’s bailout and order that he be held in the custody of the United States Marshals Service pending trial.
The court heard arguments during a loan revocation hearing on Friday, but next steps in the case are unclear.
