FEDERAL FRAUD - NO JAIL TIME (United States. v. S. Y.)

March 2015

Client was investigated by federal agents from 2011-2014, and retained Harris & Carmichael.  While investigating the case and preparing for a potential large-scale fraud trial, H&C were able to negotiate with the prosecutor to minimize client's risk and exposure.  Client initially faced decades in prison, but got a beneficial plea deal to only one charge.  At sentencing, Phoenix Harris convinced the court to impose a below-guidelines sentence of PROBATION ONLY, with no active incarceration.
