'Internet Casanova’ gets 18 months for theftMay 9, 2013
By The Associated Press
SOUTH BEND — A judge sentenced a man dubbed the “Internet Casanova” to 18 months in prison Wednesday for stealing a girlfriend’s camera and pawning it.
“You are, in essence, a con man,” St. Joseph Superior Court Judge John Marnocha told defendant Raymond Holycross, 29, of Plymouth. He also ordered Holycross to pay victim Theresa Bridgroom $856 in restitution.
Holycross, who appeared wearing glasses with short, sandy brown hair, did not address the court, the South Bend Tribune reported. He pleaded guilty to felony theft last month.
Holycross was dubbed the “Internet Casanova” after other women across the country accused him of wooing them online and then stealing from them. He’s charged in Howard County with stealing a gun from a woman there.
Court documents said Holycross told Bridegroom, of Mishawaka, his name was Ray Parris when he met her through a friend. She called police when she found a pawn shop receipt for her camera under his real name.
“You found your way into Ms. Bridegroom’s heart and life and gave her a fake name,” Marnocha said, adding that it appeared he did so for financial gain.
