US v. Peel, No. 07-3933

By FindLaw Staff on February 12, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Conviction and sentence of defendant for bankruptcy fraud, obstruction of justice, and possession of child pornography is affirmed in part, reversed in part and remanded where: 1) either the bankruptcy fraud conviction or the obstruction of justice conviction must be vacated as the crimes committed in a bankruptcy proceeding are the same offense for purposes of double jeopardy; 2) conviction for possession of child pornography is affirmed; 3) intended loss must be recalculated as defendant presented credible evidence for discounting  a stream of future payments to future value; and 4) the guidelines sentencing range must be redetermined.
