Victory in Appeal before Sixth Circuit in Alleged Identity Theft Case

Client Type: Individual

We represented, at the sentencing phase and on appeal, a local developer (David Miller) for alleged federal crimes committed in obtaining and renewing a business loan from a federally-insured bank. The case involved novel issues regarding the federal aggravated identity theft statute, particularly as it applies in certain white-collar contexts. Our firm did not try the case but represented the defendant at sentencing (where he was sentenced to 45 months imprisonment, far below the sentence recommended by the sentencing guidelines) and on appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. The case is significant because it involves important and novel questions regarding the federal aggravated identity theft statute - significant enough to be the subject of a front-page story in the National Law Journal in January 2013. In late 2013, the Sixth Circuit reversed three of the four counts of conviction, including the two counts of aggravated identity theft, based squarely on the arguments we had set forth. Re-sentencing remains pending.
