Leader Of Navy Kickback Scheme Wants Sentence Thrown Out


Ralph Mariano the leader of an $18 million dollar kickback scheme targeting the Navy is looking to have his 10-year sentence thrown out.  The AP reports that an attorney for Mariano is asking the federal appeals court to throw out the sentence because the judge failed to award him credit at sentencing for accepting responsibility.  Mariano was promised by the government that they would recommend a more lenient sentence for accepting responsibility; they did not make the recommendation due to Mariano denying the scheme in his complaints to the judge and the Justice Department about the alleged prosecutorial misconduct. The US Attorney has not commented.
