>> WESTERN USA TIMESHARE NEWS:
HOUSTON: Sentences have finally been handed down for the member of the Jariv gang, who operated a multimillion dollar timeshare fraud case that was operated out of Las Vegas, NV but prosecuted in Texas.
The head of the gang, James Assi Jariv, was previously sentenced to one count of Conspiracy to Commit Mail & Wire Fraud in Connection with Telemarketing and one count of Conspiracty to Launder Monetary Instruments. For each of the two counts the Judge sentenced him to 10 years in federal prison and 3 years of supervised release, but the terms run concurrently so his total sentence will be just that: 10 years in the slammer plus the 3 years of supervised release.
In addition he will be responsible for restitution in the amount of $5,062,888.73 AND he will serve an additional 10 years for his role in a big biofuels scam in Nevada.
The punishment for the others is as follows:
Alexander Jariv was sentenced to 60 months in Federal Prison on charges of Conspiracy to Commit Mail & Wire Fraud in Connection with Telemarketing; the sentence will be followed by 3 years of supervised Release with special conditions; and $5,043,387.73 in restitution. He will also soon be sentenced in Nevada for his part in the biofuels scam mentioned above, so he will likely be serving more than those five years (60 months) in total.
Thresa Lloyd: 72 months custody of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP); 3 years of supervised release with special conditions (SRT); $5,043,387.73 Restitution. The charge was one count of Conspiracy to Commit Mail & Wire Fraud in Connection with Telemarketing
Ronald Frank Muise: 90 months custody of BOP; 5 years SRT; $5,043,387.73 Restitution. The charge was one count of Conspiracy to Commit Mail & Wire Fraud in Connection with Telemarketing
Michael Derek Muise: 60 months custody of BOP; 5 years SRT with special conditions; $5,043,387.73 Restitution. The charge was one count of Conspiracy to Commit Mail & Wire Fraud in Connection with Telemarketing
Leon Avedikian: 60 months custody of BOP; 4 years SRT with special conditions; $5,043,387.73 Restitution. The charge was one count of Conspiracy to Commit Mail & Wire Fraud in Connection with Telemarketing
Varda Jariv: 5 years probation with special conditions; Restitution of $439,908.71. The charge was one count of Conspiracy to Launder Monetary Instruments
Jiwon Jariv: The docket shows all counts against her as being terminated. In May a pretrial diversion agreement was entered on her behalf, which means she is free. What is a pretrial diversion agreement, you ask? According to Justice.gov
Pretrial diversion (PTD) is an alternative to prosecution which seeks to divert certain offenders from traditional criminal justice processing into a program of supervision and services administered by the U.S. Probation Service. In the majority of cases, offenders are diverted at the pre-charge stage. Participants who successfully complete the program will not be charged or, if charged, will have the charges against them dismissed; unsuccessful participants are returned for prosecution.
The major objectives of pretrial diversion are:
- To prevent future criminal activity among certain offenders by diverting them from traditional processing into community supervision and services.
- To save prosecutive and judicial resources for concentration on major cases.
- To provide, where appropriate, a vehicle for restitution to communities and victims of crime.
- The period of supervision is not to exceed 18 months, but may be reduced.
The Court will recommend they all (with the exception of Varda Jariv and Jiwon Jariv) be incarcerated at a minimum security BOP facility near Las Vegas, Nevada and the State of Texas has no objection.
And that’s all, folks!
