Just in on the Quatloos forum, per an email from the AUSA and posted by Lost Income:
Defendants Joel Gillis and Edward Wishner were sentenced today (November 16, 2015) to the following:
Gillis: 120 months imprisonment, followed by 3 years of supervised release
Wishner: 108 months imprisonment, followed by 3 years of supervised release
A restitution hearing has been scheduled for February 1, 2016 at 10:00 AM before Judge Otero, courtroom #1, on the 2nd floor of the U.S. Courthouse, 312 N. Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. the notification system will be updated after the restitution hearing.
The court ordered the defendants to surrender to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons on December 28, 2015.
So, Joel got 10 years and Ed 9 years. Given their ages, these sentences may result in life in prison.
That’s a far cry from the 2 years in prison and 3 years supervised release that they both wanted. If you’re looking for where I mentioned that before, I didn’t. Joel and Ed posted their take on the whole situation in two separate documents and I was slowly chipping away at responses but missed the boat on getting it done before sentencing. Crap. I’ll still post a response, since there’s some good insight into how deluded these scumbags are.
But we’ve got a nice victory here and that restitution hearing will certainly appeal to my sadistic side.
