28 SCM Criminal Defense Supreme Court reverses convictions of real estate developers

Following a criminal jury trial, our clients were convicted of three counts of failure to file a proper tax return and one count of engaging in a pattern of unlawful activity (but acquitted of all counts of tax evasion).   An appeal to the Supreme Court of Utah resulted in the Court reversing the counts and a remand to the trial court with instructions to enter a judgment of acquittal.
