Federal Attorneys Get White Collar Client Slap on the Wrist

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) - LibertyBell Law Group's team of federal attorneys represented one of thirty nine defendants in a white collar, fraud, drugs and violent crimes case. The federal case involved fraud, racketeering, extortion, illegal use of firearms, illegal gambling, drug trafficking, and loansharking. The federal attorneys from LibertyBell Law Group, a multi-jurisdictional state and federal law firm, represented the client on charges involving numerous counts of wire fraud and wire fraud conspiracy.

Over a 4 year period of time, the FBI investigated the client for defrauding a financial company of more than 1.5 million dollars. The United States prosecutor also claimed the defendant, along with others, posed as employees, made numerous phone calls, used illegally obtained company information, and traveled to various states in order to carry out the fraudulent activities.

"Even in cases where the evidence appears to be overwhelmingly against the client, there are always strategies to find weaknesses in the prosecution's case," says Gina Tennen, a LibertyBell Law Group federal criminal attorney who worked behind the scenes. "The federal court attorney working on the case created reasonable doubt and challenged the evidence brought against the client."

LibertyBell Law Group's federal attorneys pooled their expert resources, devised a winning strategy, and fought hard to get 4 counts of wire fraud charges dismissed. Each count of wire fraud carries a 20 year sentence, adding up to 80 years and total fines of over 3 million dollars. Wire fraud conspiracy alone has a fine of 1 million dollars and a sentence of 30 years in federal prison. If convicted on all counts, their white collar client would have received 110 years in federal prison, 3 years supervised release and would have had to pay over 4 million dollars. LibertyBell Law Group federal attorneys successfully obtained their client only 16 months imprisonment for wire fraud conspiracy.
