U.S. v. John P. Miller














John P. Miller and tax defense attorney
David M. Garvin

    
From 1999 through 2007 Frank DeSantis, Jeffrey Jedlicki, and Michael Geraud owned and operated numerous boiler rooms throughout South Florida that fraudulently sold commodities and foreign currency options to the public.  As a result of their fraudulent acts, approximately 1000 investors lost over 47 million dollars.

     As part of a plea agreement to receive a lower sentence, Desantis, Jedlicki, and Geraud pled guilty to conspiracy and testified that John Miller,  a CPA in South Florida, assisted the conspiracy by forming over 20 corporations and preparing bogus accounting records and tax returns to conceal their illegal scheme.

     Miller pled not guilty to charges of conspiracy, obstruction and filing fraudulent tax returns.  Mr. Miller was represented at trial by criminal tax attorney, David M. Garvin.  Following a two week trial, Mr. Miller was found NOT GUILTY on all counts..

Client's Comments
                                                                                                                                                                                         August 31st, 2012

        In July 2007 we found out that a current client and a past client were involved in some scheme to bilk investors and the U.S. Government out of millions of dollars in hard earned money and income taxes.

        Little did we know that the government would try to bring us in and make us part of the scheme. They asked us for our help which we were more than willing to provide. However, that help proved to be a big mistake.

        In February
2008 the government asked for my help once again. I walked into a meeting totally unprepared for the barrage of questions, and was made to feel I was the wrongdoer.

        I had nothing to do with the fraud that was created. It took four government agencies three years and countless agents to unravel the scheme. I was not aware of it and kept in the dark. All I did was prepare their income tax returns and set up corporations for them which is the same thing any other hardworking C.P.A. would have done.

        In March of
2008 we contacted David M. Garvin of David M. Garvin, P. A. to assist us with our problem. During the next four years Mr. Garvin stood by us the whole time as our case worked its way through the legal system. I got indicted in February of 2012. I must tell you that Mr. Garvin is the most amazing attorney I have seen. He knew exactly what to do in order to prove my innocence and get me my life back.

        David knew I was telling the truth and helped me to explain my story in front of a jury and get my name cleared.

The bottom line is this: If someone from the U.S. Government contacts you to "help" them with their case, don't. Get an attorney. If you want the best, call David M. Garvin.

Not only do the courts hand down substantial prison sentences, but those convicted must also pay fines, civil taxes and penalties. CIís conviction rate is one of the highest in federal law enforcement.

            Since CIís inception in 1919 to the present, the conviction rate for Federal tax prosecutions has never fallen below 90 percent.  This is a record of success that is unmatched in Federal law enforcement.
