Man Sentenced To Two Years For Mail Fraud

Chrysanthos Nicholas pleaded guilty to mail fraud for taking money and items from elderly people. He is a New York coin dealer who was just sentenced to prison for two years. He also has to pay $250,000 in restitution. A man in Minnesota sent Nicholas valuable coins, which were worth $135,450.40. Nicholas received the coins but never paid for them. The man tried to contact him for the money because it was his life savings, but had no luck. Nicolas stole $267,473.40 in coins and metals though his business. His business was called TCW Trading and North Fork Six Fare Coin Consultants. He told his elderly victims that he would get a good return on the coins. The prosecution wanted Nicholas to serve 27 to 33 months in prison. The defense argued for six months in a half way house and the other six months on monitoring. The Defense also said that he was going through a hard time at home and with his child custody and that he made a bad business decision.

What to Do If You Have Been Charged with a Criminal Offense

Minnesota recently passed a public safety bill that brings sweeping changes to the state’s juvenile justice system. While minors sometimes run afoul of the law, the juvenile justice system seeks to account for the differences between children and adults. Therefore, while the penalties for adults convicted of crimes focus on punishment, those for juveniles are aimed at diversion and restorative practices.
If a county medical examiner’s work is called into question in one case, it can affect all those they were a part of. An independent review is underway of murder cases involving the testimony of the long-time medical examiner in Ramsey County, Minnesota. The review comes in response to a wrongful murder conviction that was recently vacated on the basis that the medical examiner gave flawed medical testimony.
You might ask how plea bargains work if you are considering settling your criminal case by skipping the trial phase. A plea bargain in Minneapolis, MN, happens when a criminal defendant agrees to plead guilty or no contest instead of having the prosecution prove his or her guilt at trial. The prosecution agrees to reduce the charges, recommend less harsh penalties, or drop the charges altogether in exchange for a guilty plea.
