United States v. Peters

November 2, 2009

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
v.
FRANK E. PETERS, DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: William M. Skretny United States District Judge

FIRST AMENDED PRELIMINARY ORDER OF FORFEITURE

BASED upon the counts of conviction (Counts 1,5,6,7,8, and 9) returned against the defendant, FRANK E. PETERS, by the jury in this case on or about July 30, 2007, whereby, on March 19, 2009, this Court issued a Decision and Order granting an Order of Forfeiture against FRANK E. PETERS, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 982(a)(2), in the amount of TWENTY-THREE MILLION, ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-FOUR THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED FIFTY-NINE DOLLARS ($23,154,259.00); and

WHEREAS, this Court has concluded that there is cause to believe that the proceeds of the offenses of conviction, as a result of the acts and omissions of the defendant cannot be located upon the exercise of due diligence; have been transferred to third parties; and/or have been substantially diminished in value, and, therefore, this Court is authorized to order the forfeiture of any other property of the defendant up to the value of $23,154,259.00 pursuant to 21 U.S.C. §§ 853(p)(1) and (2); and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure Rule 32.2(c)(1) no ancillary proceeding is required for a money judgment, therefore, the sum of $23,154,259.00 has been forfeited and has been secured by an entry of judgment. Said judgment amount will accrue interest at the prevailing rate per annum and serve as a judgment and lien against the defendant's property, wherever situated until fully satisfied; and

WHEREAS, the judgment has been filed against the defendant, FRANK E. PETERS, and in the event the defendant pays the judgment in full prior to his sentencing, the United States shall prepare an appropriate satisfaction of judgment; and

NOW THEREFORE, pursuant to Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure Rule 32.2(b) and Title 18, United States Code, Sections 982(a)(2) and (b)(1), and upon entry of this First Amended Preliminary Order of Forfeiture;

IT IS ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that all of FRANK E. PETERS' right, title and interest (direct or indirect) in the following properties be forfeited as substitute assets pursuant to Title 21, United States Code, Section 853(p) and, if after the completion of any ancillary proceedings wherein the government is successful in obtaining a final order of forfeiture, the net proceeds generated from their forfeiture and (where necessary) sale shall be credited accordingly against the $23,154,259.00 judgment entered against the defendant, including:
