Mark Yannone Reports
Four-month federal income tax evasion case ends without convictions
by Attorney Lowell (Larry) Becraft, Jr.
According to Joel Hansen, the Independent American Party's attorney, of the 189-count indictment against nine defendants in Las Vegas, the government did not get a single conviction. Several of the defendants were acquitted. The government was unable to convict any of the other defendants on any charge but did manage to hang the jury of five of the defendants, so the government can retry those defendants if they choose to attempt it.
