United States v. Gambardella

Defendant charged with two counts of violent collections of extortionate extensions of credit with proof including dozens of consensual tapes of defendant and a co-conspirator as recorded by a victim and FBI. After an extensive investigation of this victim by Mr. Lichtman it was revealed that he had committed multiple bank frauds and perjury in another state – just days before the trial was scheduled to begin. Prosecutors dropped the charges and the defendant took a misprision of felony plea deal, resulting in a sentencing guidelines level of 9 and a sentence of probation.
