Julia Fox co-signs brother Christopher's $450K bail bond in NYC 'ghost gun' peddling case
MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: Julia Fox’s brother Christopher, who has been slapped with several gun charges in Manhattan last week, is currently out of prison. Christopher Fox posted a $450,000 bail bond. He is on the radar for running a ghost gun peddling operation out of his Upper East Side apartment and even getting assistance from his celebrity sister, according to reports.
The ‘Uncut Gems’ actress co-signed the $450,000 bond as she got her brother Christopher Fox out from Rikers Island while he battles multiple accusations. “Of course Fox seemed upset,” celebrity bail bondsman Ira Judelson, who was present to post the bond, told the New York Post. “It is her brother,” he said. Christopher Fox, 30, was taken into custody last week and was allegedly charged with using 3D printers to create gun parts that could be later assembled and sold as untraceable ‘ghost guns,’ as per Manhattan prosecutors.
Julia Fox listed her occupation as ‘actress/model’
On Monday, March 13, officials confirmed that Christopher signed the $450,000 bond and was awaiting to be released following an appearance in Manhattan Criminal Court on the same day. He will be back in court on May 4 while the mail receipt reflects that Julia and her parents signed off on the bond with the celebrity listing her occupation as ‘actress/model’ with the word ‘retired’ penciled in. The bond was secured after assets belonging to the bond were secured with Christopher’s dad Thomas Fox and her current assets, officials said.
'Christopher possessed enough parts to assemble an assault weapon-style rifle'
Christopher was arrested along with his father who was not charged in the case. While the investigation is still ongoing, prosecutors have claimed that the young Fox pulled off about $345,000 in illicit gun sales through his CashApp account between April 2020 and January 2023. “The defendant possessed enough gun parts to assemble an assault weapon-style rifle,” assistant district attorney Cyril Heron said during Christopher’s arraignment late Thursday, March 9.
