In Court today, a Federal Judge dismissed the Government’s case against my client. The Government charged my client with alleged conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud. My client has no felony conviction, will not spend a moment in custody, and can put the stress of facing the U.S. Government behind her. For more information on federal conspiracy, bank fraud, and wire fraud charges, see below. 18 U.S. Code § 1349 states the following of attempt and conspiracy: Any person who attempts or conspires to commit any offense under this chapter shall be subject to the same penalties as those prescribed for the offense, the commission of which was the object of the attempt or conspiracy.A year ago, I engaged in hours of negotiations with the Government, which eventually led to my client entering a Pre-Trial Diversion Agreement with the United States Government. 18 U.S. Code § 1344 states the following of bank fraud:Whoever knowingly executes, or attempts to execute, a scheme or artifice—(1) to defraud a financial institution; or(2) to obtain any of the moneys, funds, credits, assets, securities, or other property owned by, or under the custody or control of, a financial institution, by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises;shall be fined not more than $1,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 30 years, or both.18 U.S. Code § 1343 states the following of fraud by wire, radio, or television:Whoever, having devised or intending to devise any scheme or artifice to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, transmits or causes to be transmitted by means of wire, radio, or television communication in interstate or foreign commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, or sounds for the purpose of executing such scheme or artifice, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both. If the violation occurs in relation to, or involving any benefit authorized, transported, transmitted, transferred, disbursed, or paid in connection with, a presidentially declared major disaster or emergency (as those terms are defined in section 102 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5122)), or affects a financial institution, such person shall be fined not more than $1,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 30 years, or both.

About Attorney Rich Tanasi
After graduating from Roger Williams School of Law in Rhode Island, I began practicing law in Nevada in 2005. Since then, I have tried numerous cases in Nevada's State and Federal Courts. I have also appeared and argued at several administrative proceedings in Nevada. Along the way, I have represented hundreds of individuals injured in car accidents because of negligent drivers. I also work hard for people accused and arrested by State and Federal law enforcement. When I am not representing clients who have hired me, I represent clients the State and Federal Governments appoint me. In the Federal system, I earned my way on to the Criminal Justice Act's panel of appointed attorneys. Similarly, I am qualified to maintain a contract with Clark County, Nevada to represent State-appointed clients facing serious criminal charges. Contact me today, so I can get to work for you.
