United States v. Gyanbaah (Nkansah), No. 10-2441 (2d Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed from his convictions for conspiring to, and filing, false claims with the IRS, bank fraud, aggravated identity theft, and identity theft. The court held that there was insufficient evidence for defendant's conviction for bank fraud and that his conviction for bank fraud and aggravated identity theft related to bank fraud must be vacated. The court found that defendant's other arguments were without merit but did not address his claim regarding the substantive reasonableness of his sentence.
