Ex-Biden Energy Official Sam Brinton A Free Man Despite Facing Charges for Allegedly Stealing Luggage
Sam Brinton avoided prison time in the Minneapolis and Las Vegas cases.
Sam Brinton, the non-binary former Biden Energy official, ended the year as a free man even though he faces charges for allegedly stealing luggage.
Brinton did not receive prison time in luggage stealing cases in Minneapolis and Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas judge gave Brinton a 180-day suspended jail sentence. He had to pay the victim $3,671 and $500 in other fees.
Brinton traveled to Las Vegas on a secret tax-payer-funded trip.
In Minneapolis, Brinton has to undergo an adult diversion program involving a mental health evaluation. He must also give the victim an apology letter and return any stolen property.
Brinton still faces charges in a third case:
Then, in February 2023, following reports of those two cases, a female Tanzanian fashion designer based in Houston told Fox News Digital that some articles of clothing Brinton had been photographed wearing were in her luggage that she reported missing in Washington, D.C., in 2018.
“I saw the images. Those were my custom designs, which were lost in that bag in 2018,” she told Fox News Digital in an interview. “He wore my clothes, which was stolen.”
Months later, in May, Brinton was arrested by Maryland and Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police officers related to Khamsin’s allegations. Khamsin’s lawyer later confirmed to Fox News Digital that police who executed a search warrant at Brinton’s home discovered Khamsin’s missing clothes and returned them to the designer.
Proceedings in that case have been delayed multiple times, and the next hearing is scheduled for March 2024, according to court filings reviewed by Fox News Digital. Khamsin also filed a lawsuit against Brinton.
