Mr. Ventura represented a client charged by a Federal Indictment with conspiracy to commit mail fraud, as a result of a multiple year investigation of defrauding motor vehicle insurance carriers. Mr. Ventura’s client was labeled as a “runner” for his role in the conspiracy. As a runner, the client and several other co-defendants, were accused of persuading and delivering individuals, who had allegedly sustained injuries as the result of a car accident, to a Chiropractor to obtain allegedly unnecessary and overpriced medical treatment.
Through investigation and negotiation, Mr. Ventura was able to reduce the amount of insurance companies’ losses attributed to his client’s participation in the conspiracy. Further, Mr. Ventura succeeded in arguing for a single month of home detention and two-year probationary sentence for his client, in lieu of the federal guideline prison sentence of 8-14 months.
