US v. Stepanian, No. 08-1053

By FindLaw Staff on June 29, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Sentence for conspiracy to commit access device fraud and aggravated identity theft is affirmed where: 1) the district court's properly applied the six-level multiple victim enhancement for more than 250 victims as the bank account holders who were reimbursed for their losses were still victims; 2) the court understood its discretion to depart from the sentencing guidelines, and imposed a sentence with that understanding in mind; and 3) the court did not err in imposing a mandatory two-year consecutive sentence for aggravated identity theft.
