United States v. Crisci

United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
273 F.3d 235 (2001)

Facts

Crisci (defendant) was employed as the chief engineer at a residential health care facility. Crisci created false invoices from contractors who did business with the facility and then requisitioned checks from the facility’s accounting department purportedly to pay the contractors. Crisci fraudulently endorsed the checks and presented them for payment to the check-cashing company that cashed the employees’ weekly paychecks. The check-cashing company gave Crisci the cash and deposited the checks in the facility’s payroll account, causing the funds to move from the accounts on which the checks were drawn into the payroll account. Crisci was indicted on seventeen counts of bank fraud, one count for each of seventeen fraudulently endorsed checks. Crisci was convicted after trial and argued on appeal that the counts on which he was convicted were improperly duplicitous because each count alleged that Crisci violated both subsections of the bank-fraud statute.
