Successful Resolution of Federal Criminal Charges: Probation with Restitution for Social Security Fraud Charges

April 2024


In a significant legal battle, our client faced a four-count indictment, including charges of Conspiracy, False Statement, Theft of Government Funds, and Scheme to Conceal Material Facts under various federal statutes. The accusations alleged that our Client had fraudulently obtained $75,000.00 in social security benefits over an eight-year period.

Upon being retained, Attorney Kensley Barrett of the Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm swiftly intervened, securing our Client's release from initial detention and obtaining a copy of the indictment. Holding multiple consultations with our Client, we meticulously crafted strategies aimed at securing the most favorable outcome in the case.

With a deep understanding of the legal landscape and armed with compelling arguments, Attorney Kensley Barrett entered into negotiations with the US Attorney's Office, representing our Client's interests. Through persistent advocacy and effective communication, we successfully negotiated a non-jail resolution with the prosecutor.

At the sentencing hearing, the efforts of Attorney Kensley Barrett, in collaboration with the US Attorney's Office, bore fruit. The sentencing judge embraced the joint recommendation and sentenced our client to two years of probation, coupled with a restitution order. This resolution marked a pivotal moment, sparing our client from the specter of incarceration and exorbitant fines.

Despite facing a maximum exposure of fifteen years in jail and significant financial penalties, our Client emerged from the legal ordeal with a renewed sense of hope and the opportunity to rebuild their life. The Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm's unwavering dedication to our Client's cause exemplifies our commitment to achieving justice and safeguarding our Clients' futures.

The successful resolution underscores the Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm's prowess in navigating complex legal challenges and advocating tirelessly for our clients' rights and interests.
