Mail and Wire Fraud Sentence Affirmed

In US v. Turk, No. 09-5091, the court affirmed defendant's sentence for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud where the district court properly calculated the loss caused by the defendant's fraud and imposed a reasonable sentence.

 

As the court wrote:  "Defendant-appellant Ivy Woolf Turk appeals the sentence imposed on her by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Buchwald, J.) after she pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, 1343, 1349. The district court sentenced Woolf Turk principally to 60 months' imprisonment and ordered her to pay $29,660,192.36 in restitution to the victims of the mortgage fraud she perpetrated."
