United States Supreme Court Denies Petition for Writ of Certiorari in the Criminal Case Against R. Allen Stanford

In 2012, a jury convicted R. Allen Stanford of one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and mail fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, 1343, and 1349; four counts of wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1343 and 2; five counts of mail fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341 and 2; one count of conspiracy to obstruct a Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) investigation in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1505 and 371; one count of obstruction of an SEC investigation in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1505 and 2; and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1956(h). The United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas sentenced Stanford to a term of 110 years in prison, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit unanimously affirmed the District Court’s judgment. Stanford then filed a petition for writ of certiorari in the United States Supreme Court. On November 28, 2016, the Supreme Court denied Stanford’s petition, thus upholding his 2012 conviction.
