United States v. Davis, No. 12-20443 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed his conviction of six counts of aiding and abetting in bank fraud. Defendant's convictions stemmed from his participation in a scheme to fraudulently obtain funds by straw credit card purchases. The court reversed the convictions and remanded for further proceedings, holding that the government did not support with sufficient proof the essential financial-institution element of the bank-fraud counts charged in the indictment.
