MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A convicted felon accused of stealing thousands of dollars in a bogus car scheme pleaded guilty in another case this week.

It’s a scheme the  News Channel 3 investigators exposed earlier this year.

In court Monday, a judge ordered Leandre Barner to pay back $1,200 to a man who paid for a van he never received.

Barner pleaded guilty to theft of property, but other people say he did the same thing to him, so more charges are still pending.

He’ll be back in court for those next month.

Barner also pleaded guilty to similar charges last year after conning a Texas man out of nearly $30,000 dollars.
