Escambia County Father And Son Charged With CARES Act Fraud

February 26, 2021

An Escambia County father and son have been charged with CARES Act fraud.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Economic Crimes Unit charged 34-year old Antonio Raychouni Slocum Sr. and 19-year old Antonio Raychouni Slocum Jr. in the scheme.

Investigators have been investigating the father/son duo since Slocum Jr. was arrested in December  2020. Slocum Jr. was arrested with his mother Megan Slocum for their involvement in a scheme to defraud Navy Federal. Slocum Jr. and Slocum Sr.’s most recent charges are related to obtaining a CARES ACT loan from the Small Business Administration by using another individual’s stolen identity; which Slocum Sr.’s younger brother Ari’obasi Jenkins was also charged with back in December.

Slocum Jr. is charged with fraud and swindle of $50,000 or more, fraud-use ID of another without consent of $50,000 or more, fraud-money laundering $20,000 less than $100,000, and fraud-illegal use of a credit card. Slocum Sr. is charged with fraud and swindle of $50,000 or more, fraud-use ID of another without consent of $50,000 or more, fraud-money laundering $20,000 less than $100,000, and fraud-uttering a false instrument. Both remained in the Escambia County Jail without bond.

Investigators said more arrests are expected.

    All these government cash give-a-ways are an open invitation to fraud. Give everybody a needed amount of free food and furnish their necessities as long as this “so called pandemic” rules the world.

    Everybody is always quick to judge but how many people know them. Everyone is entitled to there opinion but the father is not in this kids life any of his kids Maybe they are trying to put everything the father done on his kid. Just because he has tattoos he is now being judged. Why judge people if we dont know the whole story. This young man is a good person.

    Anybody else notice the ages of the arrestees? Sr. was 15 years old when Jr. was born. Got to give Sr. points for sticking around and raising his boy when he was just a boy himself! Led his son right into a life of crime, he did. Wonderful parents!

    He’s only 15 years older than his son…a sad commentary on the family unit these days.

    Another example of failed parenting. Apparently these individuals were never taught or had instilled in them the importance of working and being a productive member of society.

    @ Paul- Prison? Wishful thinking. This will get them the ultimate punishment. The dreaded probation. They’ll be back on the streets doing their thing in no time. If Mr. 7 felonies from a couple of days ago was out on the streets with his gun and his dope this is small potatoes. I guess it’s 25 strikes and you’re out these days.
