My friends and business associates wrote over one hundred (100) letters to the Judge for sentencing saying that they were prosecuting the wrong guy. They all confirmed I was honest and had faith in my morals and ethics. I had not cheated them or anyone they knew, and all stood up for me. Six (6) of the letters where from Attorney’s I had hired in the past. Even during trial, the jury was told I hired over fifty (50) professionals to make sure I was compliant with every transaction. The government theory was I only hired one to break the law.
