Pat Driscoll denied new trial.....

Post by Annalee »

Kurt should be so glad he got rid of her..... :s_yes



A federal judge denied a motion for acquittal or a new trial for the former president of a veterans charity who was convicted last year of crimes related to spending the nonprofit’s money on jewelry, shopping and other personal expenses.

Patricia Driscoll, 41, of Ellicott City, Maryland, was found guilty in November on two counts each of wire fraud and tax evasion and on one count of first-degree fraud, according to court records.

Driscoll led the nonprofit Armed Forces Foundation for 12 years. The charity was established in 2001 to promote veterans’ emotional and physical health through outdoor activities and to give small grants to needy families.

She was supposed to be sentenced in March but that was delayed by the motion she filed in December for acquittal or a new trial. She argued that the evidence against her was weak and that there were trial errors and government misconduct during her criminal investigation.

In an order filed April 24, U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Leon denied the requests for acquittal or a new trial, saying Driscoll’s arguments did not meet legal standards.

A new date for sentencing had not been set as of Thursday, according to court records.

Driscoll’s suspect spending of charity money included more than $65,000 in legal fees related to her accusations of domestic violence against her ex-boyfriend, NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, in 2014, according to court records.

Driscoll had sought a temporary restraining order against Busch, leading to a court hearing in which Busch testified under oath that he believed Driscoll was a paid assassin. Prosecutors did not charge Busch with a crime, citing insufficient evidence.

Driscoll deserves time for cheating Veterans out of benefits and help. If she was a sub-contractor for covert government ops, she won't serve any time.....JMHO
