John Robert Mulinski Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Missoula, on May 21, 2012, before U.S. District Judge Donald W. Molloy, JOHN ROBERT MULINSKI, a 50-year-old resident of Covington, Washington, appeared for sentencing. MULINSKI was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 57 months
- Special Assessment: $300
- Restitution: $138,070.97
- Supervised Release: 3 years
MULINSKI was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of wire fraud. Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Racicot prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that MULINSKI will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, MULINSKI does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for "good behavior." However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.
The investigation was conducted by the United States Secret Service.
