U.S. v. Carrington (NDCA Oakland), 2010

Randy Sue Pollock garnered another victory when four counts of wire fraud and several counts of tax evasion were dismissed against her client, who was charged with defrauding investors of nearly $4 million. Ms. Pollock successfully negotiated a favorable plea agreement to avoid more serious charges. Mr. Carrington allegedly represented to investors that he was a three-time Oscar®-winning sound designer in order to get funding for projects.

Mr. Carrington, who was originally charged with nine counts of wire fraud, was facing 20 years for tax evasion and 20 years for wire fraud if convicted. Ms. Pollack also resolved a civil lawsuit brought by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles for copyright infringement.
