Youngevity v. Pitcocks pushed to Dec, Andre Vaughn bankrupt
The last defendants in the Youngevity v. Wakaya Perfection legal saga are Dave and Barb Pitcock, and Andre Vaughn.
Youngevity was scheduled to face off against the Pitcocks and Vaughn on November 1st.
That trial date has now been pushed to December 2021.

In 2018 Vaughn was indicted for bankruptcy fraud. Vaughn pled guilty and was sentenced to ten months in prison.
Vaughn’s wife Monica (right with Andre) was also indicted on the same charges.
Monica Vaughn pled guilty and in July 2019, was sentenced to three years probation.
Vaughn’s bankruptcy misconduct occurred while has a Youngevity distributor.
He was part of the Youngevity split into Wakaya Perfection, which prompted Youngevity’s lawsuit back in 2016.
Wakaya Perfection has since rebooted twice, first as Bulavita and now Mfinity Global.
In August Mfinity Global recognized Vaughn as a “top producer”:
