JessM in trouble with the law again

Prosper's most notorious borrower, Jessica Wolcott, or JessM, is in trouble with the law again. Two months ago she was sentenced to 21 months in jail after trying to extort $125,000 out a Pepsi Bottling Executive. Her jail time is not scheduled to begin until April 1st.

While waiting for her sentence to start Wolcott was stopped for speeding on January 31st with a revoked license. In addition, the trooper found an envelope with $10,000 in cash that "responded positively" to a drug-sniffing dog.

A federal pre-trial officer is urging that Wolcott be ordered to being her sentence on the extortion charge immediately.

She has a $20,000 loan through Prosper.

Update (2/14): NYC judge revokes bail for Jessica Wolcott and demands she start serving her 21-month sentence immediately.
