Wire Fraud; Aiding and Abetting of Title 18 United States Code, Section 1343 as charged on Count 3 of the Indictment
The Court asked whether defendant had anything to say why judgment should not be pronounced. Because no sufficient cause to the contrary was shown, or appeared to the Court, the Court adjudged the defendant guilty as charged and convicted and ordered that: Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant is hereby committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of: seventy - eight (78) months .
THE COURT ORDERS that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $100.00, which is due immediately.
that the defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $7,003,654, pursuant to Defendant shall pay restitution in the amount ordered to victims as set forth in a separate victim list prepared by the probation office which this Court adopts and which reflects the Court's determination of the amount of restitution due to each victim. The victim list, which shall be forwarded to the fiscal section of the clerk's office shall remain confidential to protect the privacy interests of the victims.
Restitution shall be due during the period of imprisonment, at the rate of not less than $25 per quarter, and pursuant to the Bureau of Prisons' Inmate Financial Responsibility Program. If any amount of the restitution remains unpaid after release from custody, nominal monthly payments of at least 10% of the defendant's gross monthly income, but not less than $100, whichever is greater, shall be made during the period of supervised release. These payments shall begin 30 days after the commencement of supervision. Nominal restitution payments are ordered as the court finds that the defendant's economic circumstances do not allow for either immediate or future payment of the amount ordered.
The defendant shall be held jointly and severally liable with co-defendant Sang Yi. The victims' recovery is limited to the amount of their loss and the defendant's liability for restitution ceases if and when the victims receive full restitution.
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3612(f)(3)(A), interest on the restitution ordered is waived because the defendant does not have the ability to pay interest. Payments may be subject to penalties for default and delinquency pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3612(g).
The defendant shall comply with General Order No. 01-05.
Pursuant to Section 5E1.2(a) of the Guidelines , all fines are waived as the Court finds that the defendant has established that he is unable to pay and is not likely to become able to pay any fine.
