          Craig W. Albee Defendant's Attorney:

          AMENDED JUDGMENT IN A CRIMINAL CASE (FOR OFFENSES COMMITTED ON OR AFTER NOVEMBER 1, 1987)

          Barbara B. Crabb District Judge.

         The defendant was acquitted on Counts 3 and 9 of the third superseding indictment.

         The defendant was found not guilty on Counts 1, 5, 7, 10 and 12 of the third superseding indictment.

         The defendant is sentenced as provided in pages 2 through 6 of this judgment. The sentence is imposed pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984.

         IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the defendant shall notify the United States Attorney for this district within 30 days of any change of name, residence, or mailing address until all fines, restitution, costs, and special assessments imposed by this judgment are fully paid. If ordered to pay restitution, the defendant shall notify the court and United States Attorney of any material change in the defendant's economic circumstances.

         IMPRISONMENT

         As to counts 2, 4, 6, 8 and 11 of the third superseding indictment, it is adjudged that defendant is committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for a term of 57 months on each count. As to count 13 of the third superseding indictment, it is adjudged that defendant is committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for a term of 57 months. All the terms are to be served concurrently. I recommend that defendant receive substance abuse counseling and that he be afforded prerelease placement in a residential reentry center with work release privileges.

         The U.S. Probation Office is to notify local law enforcement agencies, and the state attorney general, of defendant's release to the community.

         SUPERVISED RELEASE

         The term of imprisonment is to be followed by five-year terms of supervised release as to counts 2, 4, 6 and 8, and three-year terms of supervised release as to counts 11 and 13. All terms of supervised release will run concurrently under 18 U.S.C. § 3625(e).

         Under the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, the primary goals of supervised release are to assist defendant's transition into the community after a term of imprisonment and to provide rehabilitation. Supervision in this case will provide defendant assistance with community reintegration and protect the public from further crimes he might otherwise commit.

         Defendant engaged in a long-term fraud that victimized local lending institutions, business partners and former employees. He provided false information to the lending institutions in order to obtain money to fund lavish gambling trips to Las Vegas and other places. His use of drugs and gambling contributed to the destruction of his personal and professional life. He has been employed at family-run businesses most of his adult life except when he operated the companies involved in the present offense. The proposed conditions in the appendix of the presentence report are appropriate to monitor his behavior to make sure he is not re-engaging in criminal conduct and to make sure he is paying restitution.

         Neither party has raised any objections to the conditions with two exceptions. Defendant wants a clearer understanding of the third parties to whom he must disclose risks, condition no. 11, and he wants a higher ceiling on assets than the $200 value set in special condition no. 14. I have revised these two conditions and defendant has no objection to the revisions.

         If, shortly before defendant's release from custody or at any time during the course of his supervised release, he or his supervising probation officer believe that any condition of release is no longer appropriate, ...
