United States v. Gerald Green and Patricia Green
C.D. Cal.; Case No. 2:08-00059-GW
The Greens, owners of Los-Angeles-based Film Festival Management, Inc., were convicted after a jury trial in the Central District of California in September 2009 of conspiracy to violate the FCPA, violating the FCPA, committing money laundering, and other charges relating to bribes paid to government officials. The government alleged that the Greens paid government officials in Thailand in order to secure contracts to manage and operate Thailand’s yearly Bangkok International Film Festival and other contracts. In August 2010, U.S. District Court Judge George Wu sentenced the Greens to 6 months imprisonment, plus three years supervised release, and ordered to pay $250,000 each in restitution. Initially the government sought a higher sentence on appeal, but then dismissed its 9th Circuit appeal in August 2011. The Greens’ prison terms are the most lenient in the recent FCPA cases.
