Government Procurement Fraud Investigation Resolved for $1,000 Fine

Posted on Fraud Investigation by Robert Nicholson

In connection with the Firm’s defense of a Department of Defense procurement fraud investigation concerning the sale of confidential government contract information, the Firm was able to negotiate a resolution of the case to a misdemeanor plea with a $1,000 fine.  As anyone who practices in the area of Federal Criminal defense can attest, misdemeanor dispositions are quite uncommon.

The Firm was able to negotiate the favorable disposition for our client by emphasizing the client’s otherwise unblemished background, as well as certain factual aspects of the case that mitigated the conduct, including the client’s voluntary disclosure of his conduct.  Thankfully, the government prosecutor on the case was open-minded and became open to the unusual disposition after a series of discussions regarding the mitigating factors in the case.
