Father-Son Convictions Affirmed (4/21/12)
I have written earlier about the father and son duo who were convicted for traditional tax crimes (Klein conspiracy and Tax Obstruction), although they had foreign accounts. See First Sentencing in Offshore Case that Went to Trial (2/5/11), here; and More Offshore Account Charges -- Of HSBC (Reputedly) and Recorded Conversations (4/21/10), here. Their convictions and sentences were upheld in a cryptic per curiam affirmance. United States v. Cohen Assor, 2012 U.S. App. LEXIS 7990 (11th Cir. 2012), here. The offshore accounts involved were with HSBC.
