Federal Defense Attorney on Search and Seizure of Electronic Devices

Search Warrant, Tampa criminal defense attorney, Tampa Criminal Defense Lawyer, Tampa Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer, Tampa Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Tampa Federal Criminal Defense LawyerTampa Federal Criminal Defense Attorney has reviewed Government policies on Search and Seizure of Electronic Devices at borders. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) policy is to treat computers, laptops, and other electronic devices like suitcases and backpacks in terms of border searches. It appears under current DHS policy, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents believe they are not required to provide justification or a reason for these electronic searches.
In a response to a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, CBP disclosed the following: Electronic devices that were searched included laptops, USB thumb drives, hard drives, cell phones, digital cameras, and even DVD disks . From October 2008 through June 2009, CBP officials searched over 1,500 electronic devices belonging to travelers.
Cell phones were the most often searched and seized devices between October 2008 and June 2009. From July 2008 to June 2009, and Border Protection (CBP) transferred electronic files found on travelers’ devices to third-party agencies almost 300 times. More than 80 percent of the transfers involved the CBP making copies of travelers’ files. Over half the time, these unknown agencies asserted independent bases for retaining or seizing the transferred files.
As a defense attorney, it appears that the best strategy when traveling is to leave electronic devices at home.

White Collar Sentencing in Federal Court

Tampa Federal Criminal Defense Attorney, Lawyer

White Collar Sentencing in Federal Court Crackdown noted by Tampa Federal Criminal Defense Attorney, W.F. ”Casey” Ebsary, Jr. – The Eleventh Circuit Court declared a sentence illegal when a white collar defendant was not sent to prison. The trial court has repeatedly placed the defendant on the federal equivalent of probation. The United States Attorney has repeatedly appealed the below guidelines sentence, and the appeals court has repeatedly reversed.

The court concluded “it is difficult to imagine a would-be white-collar criminal being deterred from stealing millions of dollars from his company by the threat of a purely probationary sentence, regardless of how much probation that person received.”

The complete decision is available here:

Mortgage Fraud Cases – Update – Case Types

Florida Federal Criminal Defense Attorney, Lawyer W.F. ”Casey” Ebsary recently reviewed an interesting piece on Mortgage Fraud by an experienced white collar criminal defense attorney. Angie Halim, an attorney recently published a summary called “The Current State of Mortgage Fraud Prosecution.” The complete work can be found in Criminal Litigation, Fall 2009, Volume 10, Number 1, American Bar Association, Section of Litigation.

The writer defines Mortgage Fraud as “a material misstatement, misrepresentation, or omission relied upon by an underwriter or lender to fund, purchase, or insure a loan.” Although the term used is “mortgage fraud” there are several fact patterns that generate state and federal criminal cases. They are according to the white collar criminal defense attorney Halim:

Mortgage appraisal fraud
Mortgage fraud equity skimming
Straw purchasing schemes
Mortgage occupancy fraud



United States Code Sections frequently used: 

Conspiracy 18 u.s.c. § 371
Mail Fraud 18 u.s.c. § 1341 
Wire Fraud 18 u.s.c. § 1343 
Bank Fraud 18 u.s.c. § 1344 
Tax Fraud 26 u.s.c. § 7201 et seq. 
False Statements 18 u.s.c. § 1001 
False Statements in Loan Applications 18 u.s.c. § 1014. 
The FBI notes and federal criminal defense attorney Halim concurs there are some emerging trends in Mortgage Fraud prosecutions including “reverse mortgage fraud schemes, credit enhancement schemes, builder bailout schemes, condominium conversion schemes, foreclosure rescue schemes, serial property flipping, and short sales schemes.” The FBI has now commenced “Operation Malicious Mortgage.” The feds will pursue lending fraud, foreclosure rescue schemes, and mortgage-related bankruptcy cases, the article notes.
