Didier Conviction Re-Instated By Ninth Circuit

MISSOULA – The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals today re-instated the insurance fraud conviction of Christin Didier. Didier was convicted by a federal jury of seven counts of mail fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud in Missoula on March 22, 2013, but in October of that year Senior U.S. District Court Judge Donald W. Molloy later acquitted Didier on a defense motion to overturn the verdict. The Circuit Court ruled that the district court had erred in entering the judgment of acquittal for Didier, reversed the order, and remanded the case to the district court for further proceedings.

Didier had not been sentenced when Judge Molloy vacated her conviction
