US v. Livesay, No. 08-14712

By FindLaw Staff on November 17, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a case arising from the huge accounting fraud conspiracy at HealthSouth Corporation, defendant's securities fraud sentence is vacated on appeal by the government where the purely probationary sentence imposed by the district court was patently unreasonable in light of defendant's role in the massive corporate fraud at issue. The court of appeals further rules that any sentence of probation would be unreasonable given the magnitude and seriousness of defendant's criminal conduct, and only the imposition of a meaningful period of incarceration will achieve Congressional sentencing goals.
