Criminal and Tax Trials Results

    Cases presented are representative of the type of cases the law firm handles. Not all cases have been included. The results of past cases are not indicative of future results. Each case has its own unique facts which substantially affect the  outcome. Perspective clients may not obtain the same or similar results.

          White collar criminal defense attorney David M. Garvin today announced the successful appeal of the bank fraud conviction of Timothy Parkes in a case involving the former Benton Bank in Polk County, Tenn. On Feb. 2, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals issued its unanimous decision in the case of United States v. Timothy Parkes, Case No. 09-6525, reversing convictions of bank fraud on all counts and granting the defendant's motion for judgment of acquittal. The court held that the district court had incorrectly denied Parkes' motion for acquittal following the jury trial.

       “After a long battle, we are pleased that Timothy Parkes is once again a free man,” said Garvin. “The appeals process can be lengthy and arduous, but it proves that bad decisions can be reversed and defendants can get a second chance at justice.”

       Parkes and his partner Mark Mourier were each charged with 13 counts of bank fraud arising from loans that were made to more than 10 LLCs for millions of dollars by Benton Bank. The bank president was separately charged and pled guilty. Ultimately, the bank failed. Parkes was also charged with making a false statement to special agents during the investigation.

       The jury found Mourier not guilty on all counts. Parkes was found not guilty on three counts of bank fraud and one count of making a false statement. During the trial the court prohibited Parkes from presenting evidence to support the theory of his defense, i.e. that the bank president had acted alone. In addition, Parkes' motion for mistrial was denied despite the fact the prosecutor improperly told the jury if they acquitted Parkes, he would get to keep more than $4 million of the bank's money. Parkes timely moved for judgment of acquittal based upon insufficient evidence. The district court denied the motion. Parkes appealed.

        The Sixth Circuit Court of appeals found that the district court erred when it prevented Parkes from introducing evidence in support of his defense. The court also found that the district court erred when it denied Parkes' motion for mistrial based upon the prosecutor's misconduct and most importantly when the district Court denied Parkes' Rule 29 motion for judgment of acquittal due to insufficient evidence.
       I was indicted in December 09 on alleged fraudulent bank charges. As a business owner I was shocked to find myself in such a tangled mess but believed that things would work themselves out given my innocence and ignorance of how underhanded the federal system could be.

   At first I took lightly my legal situation, given the absurdity of it all. Then I met David and realized how unprepared I was in preparing for my biggest life challenge.

    David is a competitor first,passionate, engaging, matched with a will to win. His ability in abstract thinking is truly a marvel to witness but his biggest asset is he truly cares about his client.

    Going up against the United States of America is similar to fighting Goliath, a daunting task at best, having a David is essential to a win.

Thank you for all your have done.

T. Parkes

    Our clients are businessmen, professionals and politicians. Good people who get caught in a process they have little knowledge of and no experience with.  Often they want to help the government because of their deep belief that the government will be fair and justice will prevail.  By the time they realize that this approach is naive they have made their case much more difficult to defend.  If you believe that you may be the subject of an investigation, do NOT make the mistake of answering any questions until you have retained an experienced attorney. When hiring an attorney remember that you have the absolute right to inquire as to the lawyer’s trial record. Do not be afraid to ask for the results of the attorney’s last 10 federal criminal trials for the defense.  This information is vital to making an informed decision as to who you should retain to defend you.
