United States v. James Botti

James Botti was indicted with conspiracy to commit mail fraud, bribery, and mail fraud under 18 USC §§ 1341 and 1346. The jury convicted Botti of mail fraud but hung on the conspiracy and bribery counts. Botti was scheduled to be sentenced for the mail fraud conviction on September 17, 2010. In light of the Skilling decision, District Judge Charles S. Haight Jr. ordered both sides to submit briefs and provide additional argument on Botti’s post trial motions.
