“I was arrested and my family contacted a 24 lawyer that happened to be Mr. Greenberg. Through the entire ordeal he reassured my family and I numerous times that everything was going to be fine. And he kept his word. My family and I are very, very pleased with the outcome and I couldn’t thank him enough.”

Enterprise Corruption Charges in Multimillion Dollar Offshore Sports Betting Operation Dismissed Against Attorney Todd Greenberg’s Client

The Defendant, the alleged bookmaker head of a Criminal Gambling Enterprise, was indicted for Enterprise Corruption and Money Laundering, accused of participating in a multimillion-dollar offshore sports betting operation. The Indictment, filed in Queens County, alleged that the Defendant and twenty-nine co-conspirators unlawfully operated a sports betting enterprise that stretched from Queens County to Nevada and from Rochester to Florida. After hiring two other attorneys who advised the Defendant to Plead Guilty to a Felony with a Jail Term, the Defendant hired Todd D. Greenberg, Esq. to represent him. Immediately, extensive motion practice began and Mr. Greenberg argued that the Queens County Court lack jurisdiction over his client who never even stepped foot into Queens County and was not “acting in concert” with any of the other co-conspirators. During the extensive Motion Practice, a plea bargain was reached and the Enterprise Corruption charge, which carried twenty-five years in jail, was dismissed and Mr. Greenberg’s client was permitted to plead guilty to a “Class A” Misdemeanor, and was sentenced to a conditional discharge. There was also a forfeiture of the sum of the monies seized. Instead of facing a serious jail term and a Felony conviction, all Felonies were dismissed and the case was resolved with a Misdemeanor plea. Based on Mr. Greenberg’s extensive knowledge of the law and persistence in fighting for his client, the best result was achieved.

10/1/2015 Federal Judge Grants Substantial “Variance” in Sentencing for Possession of Child Pornography via the Internet

A Southern District of New York Federal Judge granted what the Judge called a “significant variance” from the Federal Sentencing Guidelines with regard to a fifty (50) year old defendant who pled guilty to Possession of Child Pornography via the Internet. The Defendant was originally charged with Distribution and Possession of Child Pornography via the Internet. Immediately upon being retained, Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Todd Greenberg secured the Defendant’s release on a $100,000.00 signature bond. Thereafter, after discovering significant mitigating factors, Mr. Greenberg retained an expert to perform a Psychosexual evaluation. There were legal hurdles that Mr. Greenberg had to overcome to secure a fair sentence for his client who readily admitted his guilt: The charge of Distribution of Child Pornography via Internet carried a mandatory minimum of five (5) years’ incarceration. A presentation was made to a committee of Assistant US Attorneys in the Southern District and, based on the mitigating circumstances presented, Mr. Greenberg was able to procure a plea to Possession of Child Pornography, a charge that did not carry a mandatory minimum sentence. Citing the character of the Defendant, his continued counselling, his low risk of recidivism and the inherent unfairness of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Child Pornography possession, the Federal Judge granted a “significant variance” from the Guideline Range. Instead of a Federal Guideline sentence between 6 ½ years to 8 years, the Defendant received a 2 year sentence with three years’ supervised release. Through the effort of Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Todd Greenberg, his client’s sentence was significantly reduced.
