SYRACUSE, NY—United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian announced the imposition of sentence in United States District Court in Syracuse on Andria March for the offense of bankruptcy fraud.
Andria March, 33, of North Tonawanda, New York, pled guilty in April 2013 to a single count of bankruptcy fraud, relating to a bankruptcy petition she had filed in the federal courts in Syracuse in 2009. Today in Syracuse, Senior District Judge Frederick J. Scullin sentenced the defendant to a term of probation of two years and required her to perform 50 hours of community service as a condition of that probation.
As part of her plea, the defendant acknowledged that, in 2009 when she filed a bankruptcy petition in Syracuse, New York, she had intentionally failed to disclose money that she had used to purchase a pre-paid lease on a 2010 Mercedes Benz 300. Prior to sentencing, the defendant had paid into the bankruptcy court the money that she had previously failed to disclose.
This case is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Syracuse, New York. Further questions or inquiries may be directed to Executive Assistant United States Attorney John Duncan at (315) 448-0672.
