US v. Sandlin, No. 08-41277

By FindLaw Staff on December 26, 2009 2:26 PM

Defendant's conviction for making false statements on two loan applications is affirmed where, if a person makes a false statement that has the capacity to influence a bank, then the specific intent necessary to violate 18 U.S.C. section 1014 may be inferred and the offense is complete.  However, his sentence is vacated where there was insufficient evidence that the omissions on his applications caused the loans to be made.
