A Rose is a Rose

A Rose is a Rose by any other name. So is a crook and a federal appeals court has upheld the conviction of Franklin Brown, the former general counsel of Rite Aid, on fraud and obstruction charges in connection with the $1.6 billion accounting scandal that sent half a dozen executives to prison and cut the company’s stock price in half. You call him a lawyer, but he really is just a crook.

As American Lawyer Media states, the unanimous three-judge panel rejected Brown’s claims that both the prosecutors and judge had engaged in misconduct, and that secretly recorded tapes of his conversation with another executive had been tampered with.

But the appellate judges agreed that Brown, 82, who is now about halfway through serving his 10-year prison term, is entitled to a new sentencing hearing.

I say send them all away. If you have been wronged by a lawyer, a crook or a real estate con give Bill Miller a call at 602.319.6899 and we will see if we can help you. Our offices are off of the 101 in North Scottsdale.
