As leader of the phony Caffeine Awareness Association, Marina Kushner, who has written and published various anti-caffeine e-books, had been travelling the United States for years to lobby State legislators to institute a so-called “Caffeine Awareness Month.” Now, after she was arrested and charged with fraud, her group has been disbanded as part of her plea bargaining agreement.
Kushner had been using her organization to fraudulently collect money by enabling people to satisfy court-ordered community service. Kushner and the Caffeine Awareness Association, a group she founded, each pleaded guilty to a false-filing felony. Kushner’s sentence includes a $5,000 fine, 300 hours of legitimate community service, and an agreement to repay over $200,000 she scammed from innocent victims.

Perhaps, Kushner will now have the leisure to regret damning caffeine and trying to spoil the enjoyment of the benefits and pleasures of a wonderful substance!
