Not guilty verdict for coal operator
- In 2014, the firm obtained a full acquittal for a coal operator charged in a twenty-three count federal indictment. Our client was accused by the United States of participating in a tax fraud conspiracy involving more than $10 million, as well as engaging in prohibited currency transactions. The United States also sought the forfeiture of more than $10 million from our client. The government’s investigation spanned several years, resulting in felony convictions for twenty-five defendants. After a nearly three-week jury trial, however, our client was found not guilty on all charges.
