Our Napa County client was charged with a 23-count Indictment in the United States District Court Northern District of California in San Francisco with thirteen counts of violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1341—Mail Fraud; five counts of violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1343—Wire Fraud and five counts of violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1957—Money Laundering.  There was also a forfeiture allegation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 981(a)(1)(C), 18 U.S.C. § 982(a)(2) and 28 U.S.C. § 2461(c). Client plead guilty to one count of violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1341—Mail Fraud and one count of violation of 26 U.S.C. § 7201—Tax Evasion, with a loss of almost one million dollars.  All other counts were dismissed.  After aggressive and thorough investigation and use of a psychological evaluation and other mitigating evidence, client was sentenced to well below the federal sentencing guideline range with the opportunity to take an extra year off his sentence by participating in the federal Residential Drug and Alcohol Program (RDAP).
