US v. Mullins, 09-1031

Defendants' wire fraud convictions and sentences are affirmed where: 1) a "new or increased risk of loss" was plainly a material, detrimental effect on a financial institution, and fell squarely within the proper scope of the statute; 2) the statute of limitations did not expire as to certain offenses because the jury could find that, by using fraudulent information to obtain loans, defendant and her customers exposed the companies to a greater risk of loss that persisted at least until extinguished by the final loan payment; and 3) the use of interstate wires was integral to defendants' fraudulent scheme.
