US v. Taylor, No. 08-60581

Defendant's sentence for fraud in obtaining disaster relief assistance is affirmed where: 1) any error resulting from recalculation of the loss to FEMA caused by defendant's offenses did not affect defendant's substantial rights, and therefore was harmless; 2) the district court's order of restitution and forfeiture against defendant would not result in double recovery to the government; and 3) the district court did not err in not offsetting defendant's restitution obligation by the amount he was required to forfeit.
