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

Getting falsely accused of domestic violence in Minnesota may put you at risk of losing your job, custody of your children, or even your home. You may face criminal charges and the accusation may damage your reputation in the community, as people will now view you as an abuser. False domestic violence accusations often happen when couples are in a contentious relationship with a risk of divorce.
The top reasons for license suspension in Minnesota include driving under the influence of alcohol, repeated traffic violations, and failure to appear in court or pay fines. Failure to pay child support, criminal convictions and felonies, medical conditions/disabilities, and drag racing can also lead to license suspension. The suspension takes away your driving privileges, preventing you from driving legally.
Motorists arrested for allegedly driving while impaired might wonder, “Can you refuse a breathalyzer?” In Minnesota, the implied consent law requires a person licensed to drive, control, or operate a vehicle to agree to a chemical test to check for alcohol or other intoxicants in that person’s body. Refusing to submit to a breathalyzer or another chemical test is a crime, often charged as a gross misdemeanor.
