NEW YORK, May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, May 14, 2012, after deliberating for less than two hours, a federal jury found George J. Dilworth not guilty on all counts of conspiracy to defraud the IRS and making false statements to IRS agents. This acquittal represents the third consecutive contested federal criminal indictment in which Dilworth's counsel Patrick A. Mullin, a veteran federal criminal defense attorney, has secured an acquittal or dismissal on all charges.
Mr. Mullin said the jury's speedy verdict served justice in this two-week trial which had commenced on April 30, 2012. "The jury's resounding not guilty verdict on each and every count should send a loud and clear message to the IRS, which prosecuted these charges, that there must be greater selectivity before utilizing its vast powers to pursue American taxpayers." According to the IRS 2012 current fiscal year statistics, more than four out of every five IRS prosecutions result in conviction.
Mr. Mullin noted that, "The jury clearly rejected the criminal prosecution of this very good and decent man." Court testimony revealed that Dilworth, active in his church and community, had led missions to help rebuild such catastrophe-torn sites as Florida after Hurricane Andrew, Alabama after Hurricane Katrina and Haiti twice after the 2010 earthquakes.
In 2007, Mr. Mullin secured a federal jury acquittal on all ten counts brought by the DEA's Diversion Unit against a physician, marking its first full major reported defeat. In 2011, Mr. Mullin also secured a full dismissal of a six-count federal indictment against a defense contractor charged with procurement fraud as a separate corporate plea was entered based solely upon key employee misconduct.
With offices in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Fort Lee, New Jersey, Mr. Mullin concentrates in complex tax defense and federal criminal defense matters. He has argued before the United States Supreme Court in a major federal criminal sentencing matter, is the recipient of numerous professional accolades and is admitted to practice in numerous federal district and circuit courts across the country.
