A St. Thomas man who admitted that he tried to profit off the 2017 hurricanes has been given another 18 months in which to complete a pretrial diversion program, according to documents filed Friday in U.S. District Court.

Te’ron Stevens, 28, was the first person criminally indicted in connection with the 2017 hurricanes. He was charged with one count of disaster fraud and three counts of wire fraud after he claimed homeownership for a Lindbergh Bay house he did not own, court documents show.
