US v. Sicher, No. 07-2414

By FindLaw Staff on August 10, 2009 5:31 PM

Sentence for uttering forged securities, health care program theft and income tax evasion is affirmed where: 1) the district did not err in imposing a two-level sentencing enhancement for abuse of a position of trust as the record shows that defendant exercised considerable authority and discretion, was highly trusted, and used her position of trust to conceal her offenses; and 2) the court considered evidence of defendant's mental health but did not find it persuasive, and thus she is not entitled to a downward variance.
