Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit posts three more today, making five total
Massey, Donald E. v. Baker O'Neal Holding (SD Ind., David F. Hamilton, Judge) [8 pp.]
USA v. Rand, Daniel D. (ND Ind., Rudy Lozano, Judge) [10 pp.]
Before FLAUM, Chief Judge, and CUDAHY and POSNER, Circuit Judges.
CUDAHY, Circuit Judge. Appellant Daniel Rand pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy relating to an identity-theft scheme. Pursuant to this scheme, Rand and his co-conspirators stole personal information from (among others) employees of the Gary, Indiana public school system, used that information to obtain credit cards and made purchases with those credit cards. Based upon his guilty plea, Rand was sentenced to 21 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution in excess of $57,000. Rand now appeals this restitution order, claiming that the district court impermissibly included in its calculation losses of identity-theft victims not listed in the indictment or specifically identified in Rand’s guilty plea. * * * Affirmed.
