Sentencing

Our client was an accountant accused by the U.S. Attorney’s Office of assisting one of his clients in perpetrating a multi-million dollar bank fraud.  We successfully negotiated a plea to a charge of misprision of a felony and persuaded the Court to reject the government’s recommendation for a prison sentence.  Our client ended up serving less than 14 months on probation, paid a small fine, and was reinstated as a CPA.

Our client was convicted of participating in a scheme to defraud the United States of more than $4 million in federal grants.   The government sought a sentence of 60 months imprisonment, 3 years of supervised release, and more than $1 million in restitution.  We were able to convince the Court to sentence our client to a year and a day incarceration, 6 months of supervised release, and restitution of $100,000.

Our client was convicted of federal bank fraud and related offenses. The co-defendant, convicted of the same crimes, was sentenced to 42 months imprisonment. Over the government’s objection, we convinced the sentencing judge not to send our client to prison. He served less than 18 months in a halfway house, while continuing his employment.
