Couple sentenced for impersonating US Marshals, tricking woman into returning to Philippines

January 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

A Hemet man who tricked a woman into returning to her native Philippines by pretending to be a US marshal serving a deportation order was sentenced to 3 years in prison. His wife, who aided in the ruse, was sentenced to 5 years probation and mental health counseling. The pair had pleaded guilty in San Diego federal court to impersonating federal officers. Gregory Raymond Denny Jr., 38, and his wife, Karen Denny, 52, showed up at the victim’s home in Hemet in January 2010. With Gregory Denny pretending to be a marshal, the couple put handcuffs on Cherriebelle Magada Gabalonos Hibbard, 28, who is married to Denny’s cousin. Still pretending to be a US marshal, Denny tried to persuade Border Patrol agents to take Hibbard, an illegal immigrant, into custody. After they refused, Denny and his wife drove her to Los Angeles International Airport and escorted her onto a flight to Manila. Once Denny is released from prison, he is barred from being employed in any law enforcement or security jobs, according to the terms of his probation. Denny had worked as a bail agent. (LA Times)
