Sentencing - Samuel Braslau

This is an e-mail from an anonymous source with
status updates on defendants. There was a
sentencing document with regard to Samuel Braslau
attached which I will provide to anyone who requests it.

perhaps you noticed, attorney sam braslau was sentenced this week
to 85 months in the criminal case, the govt wanted 120 months but
lack of prior record helped to reduce the term. chortkoff sentencing is
delayed until sept due to "health reasons" -- I heard 3rd hand he was
recently in hospital. see attached, he is also on hook for payback of the
$1.6MM - with his prior rap sheet, chortkoff will prob get close to 10 years (?)

civil case will prob now proceed now that braslau was sentenced in the criminal case.
