Our client was charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud. At sentencing, the government argued for a custodial sentence, while we argued for a probationary sentence. We persuaded the district court judge to continue the sentencing for one week, for the purpose of giving us an opportunity to develop alternatives to incarceration. At the sentencing hearing, our client was sentenced to a term of probation with a half-way house component, but no custodial time in the Bureau of Prisons. The other two co-defendants received prison time.
Our client was charged in over 40 counts of mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and unauthorized use of access devices (credit cards). Due to the conduct the government claimed caused more than $1 million in losses, the case required review and organization of thousands and thousands of documents. Despite the government's strong arguments for the client to be sentenced to several years in custody, we obtained a sentence of probation with an order of restitution of approximately $80,000.
Our client, charged with FDA regulatory violations involving customs laws, was acquitted of all federal felony charges after a jury trial. The co-defendant was sentenced to several years in prison.
Our client was charged in his third federal health care fraud case involving millions of dollars in losses. We successfully obtained a sentence, which did not include any custodial time in prison. Ten years later, this same client was again accused, now his fourth case. By carefully investigating and documenting his very serious and varied medical conditions, we were again successful in keeping this client with his family.
