Too sick for prison? Main Line's 'godfather of payday lending' makes last-minute pitch to avoid lockup

 


Lawyers for a Main Line man dubbed the “godfather of payday lending” pushed Monday to postpone the start of his 14-year prison term, arguing that putting the ailing 77-year-old behind bars would be the equivalent of signing his death warrant.

Charles M. Hallinan, who was convicted last year in a federal racketeering case, is battling two aggressive forms of cancer and a host of other health-related maladies, his lawyers said in a last-minute pitch to U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno a week before their client is scheduled to turn himself in.
