Previous Bucks County Playhouse proprietor Ralph Miller will be sentenced Monday in a Philadelphia government court by Judge Cynthia Rufe, taking after a May 2015 conviction for protection misrepresentation. He could confront up to 30 years in jail.
Mill operator was discovered blameworthy by a government jury of documenting deceitful protection claims in the repercussions of a 2006 Delaware River surge that doused the memorable Bucks County Playhouse.
The trial took after years of deferrals, delays, and superseding charges. The criminal case was attempted in the Federal Court of the Eastern District in Philadelphia.
Mill operator lost the theater to a bank in 2010, and was accused of mail extortion and IRS evasion in 2011 by the U.S. Lawyer's Office in Philadelphia (U.S. versus Ralph Miller). The indictment asserted that Miller submitted false claims for roughly $200,000 in lighting that he apparently said was harmed in the surge (Miller's insurance agency paid him $184,000 for the lighting out of an aggregate $905,000 honor).
The IRS evasion charge seems to get from changing the falsely acquired protection checks, as per reports documented for the situation.
By objection, Miller likewise recorded fake robbery claims as proprietor of the Pocono Playhouse in Mountainhome, which was crushed by flame in 2009. Mill operator possessed the Bucks County Playhouse for over 30 years before defaulting on home loan installments in 2010.
