United States v. Stark

February 23, 2006

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
v.
DANIEL WAYNE STARK, SR., DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael J. Reagan United States District Judge

ORDER OF FORFEITURE WITH RESPECT TO PROCEEDS O $263,200.00

In the Second Superseding Indictment filed in the above cause on January 20, 2005, the United States sought forfeiture of property of defendant, Daniel Wayne Stark, Sr., pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 982(a)(1).

The Court finds that the property obtained by the defendant as described in Count 28 ($25,000.00), Count 29 ($22,600.00), and Count 30 ($24,000.00) were all "involved in" the violations of 18 U.S.C. § 1957 as specified in each of said counts. For these three counts alone, the defendant shall forfeit $71,600.00.

In addition, Count 27 describes a conspiracy under 18 U.S.C. § 1956(h) to engage in monetary transactions in criminally derived property. Using the interpretation of the Seventh Circuit of what constitutes property "involved in" for purposes of forfeiture (see United States v. Trost, 152 F.3d 715, 721 (7th Cir. 1998) and United States v. Baker, 227 F.3d 955, 967 - 971 (7th Cir. 2000);cert. denied 531 U.S. 1151 (2001)), it is clear that those transactions where the defendant obtained funds in exchange for stolen property are all "involved in" the conspiracy described in Count 27 of the Indictment, and the funds are thus forfeitable. The illegal transactions are included in Government's Exhibit 300 and are more fully detailed and described as follows:
