The jewelry theft case against Jared’s has gone cold, according to the attorney representing the man who alleges he was duped by Jared’s to steal a diamond ring.
“This case is closed, but not without a significant amount of frustration,” attorney John Hovannisian said Tuesday.
He was referring to the case against Joshua Foye, who was indicted last year on fraud charges related to a jewelry theft he did not commit.
In the first phase of the case, Hovannisian said he filed a motion for dismissal, arguing that Foyes testimony that he was unaware of the diamond ring he was supposed to buy was untrue.
He also alleged that Foys testimony that the ring had been “worn” by someone else was false.
Foyed testified that he wore the ring for about 10 minutes and did not remember it at the time.
He said he had been duped into buying the ring by Jared when he saw him wearing the ring in a video of the two men at a New York City nightclub.
The case has been held up in the court system as one of the most costly fraud cases in the state’s history.
A jury found Jared guilty last year of two counts of felony grand larceny and one count of false imprisonment.
Jared was released from prison last week after serving just three years.
Hovansian said the attorney is still pursuing criminal charges against the men who he said sold the ring to Foys.
The two men were arrested in the case and are still in custody, Hivannisians attorney said.
Hivanniian said that the attorney has already received a letter from the district attorney, which said that he will be making a formal request to drop charges.
The letter also said that Faye is cooperating with the investigation and has cooperated with Hovanniians efforts.
“We appreciate the cooperation of the police department and the court.
We will continue to pursue all avenues to ensure justice is served for the defendant,” Hovains said.
The attorney has not been able to contact Foy, who has not returned phone calls.
Foys attorney, Michael Zirad, declined to comment on the case.
Hvanniians lawsuit alleges that Fowes was involved in an alleged scheme to illegally obtain a diamond necklace from the jewelry store where Jared and a group of friends purchased the ring.
According to the suit, Fowens associates allegedly made false statements to the authorities in order to obtain the necklace, which they sold on the Internet.
The lawsuit says that Fondes told a witness that the necklace had been stolen from a woman in Florida, and that the woman said it was stolen from her husband, who also owned the jewelry shop.
Jared and Foy are each charged with conspiracy to commit grand lacrosse fraud, grand lascrosse fraud and one felony count of fraud for their alleged involvement in the ring theft.
The suit also alleges that Jared Foy has used the ring as his own personal jewelry and that Froye and Fowen both stole it from Foy’s own jewelry store.
A criminal complaint filed in federal court in November 2017 charges Foy and Fondez with conspiracy and other crimes.
Fonde is also accused of illegally obtaining a necklace in July of 2017 from the Jewelry Mart in New York, according of the suit.
The jewelry store was a popular destination for jewelry thieves who used it to purchase other stolen items from Fondees shop.
Froyes has been arrested in Florida on a separate grand liscense fraud charge.
The New York police department did not immediately return calls seeking comment on Tuesday.
Havannisian has said in court documents that the jewelry theft was part of a larger scheme involving Foyen and Foys alleged accomplice, Aaron S. Miller.
HVanniians attorneys have said in recent years that Fongers associates used the rings as a means of securing a new life in the United States, but that Fovas criminal history is not a factor in the investigation.
Fovs arrest in the jewel theft case is a blow to his supporters, who have pushed him to the brink of a political career.
Hviannis claims in court papers that Fournes and Miller were the ring stealers, with Miller allegedly taking the ring back to New York.
The jewel theft is part of an ongoing investigation by the FBI, which has also taken possession of the jewelry Fourns stole from the New York jewelers.
In a statement to the New Orleans Advocate on Tuesday, Fournys attorney, Brian B. Roussel, said the case has “turned the corner.”
“It has been a long and difficult road for the entire family, but it is clear that justice has been served for our son, Jared Fovis, and his family,” Roussell said.
“While we are disappointed that the
