I have noted before that offshore bank tax cheats seem to get lighter sentences than ordinary tax cheats. It appears from the Reuters article that this may have been a factor in getting a light sentence for these enablers. Thus, from the article:
Robert Henoch, an attorney at Kobre & Kim who represented Dorig, said on Friday the U.S. should be focused on prosecuting the Americans who dodged taxes.
"The system is clearly broken, stacked, and unfair to foreign bankers and trust company officials," he said.
"(Dorig) was put through a four year ordeal while U.S. nationals committing the object crime of tax evasion were allowed to escape with a fine, without even a slap on the wrist."Interesting argument. I have not yet seen the Guidelines calculations. I will probably post more on this sentencing later.
