Matthew Krane Sentenced Regarding Quellos Shelters (6/14/11)

Matthew Krane, a tax attorney involved in the Quellos matter, has been sentenced. (I have previously blogged about Krane here and Quellos here.) Specifically, I discussed the bizarre facts of the Krane prosecution here. Krane has been sentenced to 36 months and must (i) return $17.9 million in fees to a wealthy former client and (ii) pay $23.1 million in back taxes. The relatively light sentence was "reward" for Krane's cooperation.
