Out of the 33 people having been charged in the “Fat Leonard” scandal, an SKT client received by far the lowest term of any defendant thus far sentenced.
Originally facing up to 20 years behind bars and a $250,000 fine, Retired U.S. Navy Master Chief was sentenced to a 17-month term and a $30,000 restitution payment. Instrumental in the reduction of our client’s sentencing was Eliot Krieger’s experience in dealing with U.S. Attorneys Office, Judges and the Probation Office coupled with the painstaking efforts he took along each step of the way. SKT is ecstatic to report that during the hearing Mr. Krieger was successful in further reducing the sentence that was recommended to the Court by both the United States Attorney’s Office and the United States Probation Officer.
As reported in the New York Times, Eliot Krieger, commented that the sentence was fair:
“I think the court understood that he took responsibility for his action and understood the seriousness of what he did,” he said, adding that otherwise, his client “has led an exemplary life.”

A private nursing school in Costa Mesa that was fighting back against a federal investigation based on allegations of financial-aid fraud, prevailed when the United States Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute Pacific College, its owners or employees.
After a complete and comprehensive investigation that stretched for an entire year, Pacific College has been exonerated. The allegations were always completely unfounded as there was never any wrong-doing, and the College is gratified that the federal government now understands that.
