US v. Arthur, No. 07-1052

By FindLaw Staff on September 17, 2009 4:18 PM

Conviction of defendant and his wife for bankruptcy fraud and related crimes is affirmed where: 1) wife's conviction is supported by sufficient evidence; 2) defendant's constitutional claims are without merit as district court's conclusion that the marital agreements were fraudulent was well-founded; 3) defendant lacks standing to raise a Sixth Amendment ineffective assistance of counsel claim on behalf of his wife; and 4) district court did not err in using defendant's prior state court judgment to increase his base offense level.
