Dr. Amr Mohsen was convicted by a jury for 17 of 18 counts in connection with perjury, obstruction of justice, and witness tampering. He was sentenced to 17 years on January 5, 2007.

Given his financial losses, Amr declared banckruptcy and was represented by court appointed public defenders at his criminal trial. This unfortunately contributed to the very harsh sentence he received.

With the help of family and friends, new counsel was hired to represent him in the appeal of his criminal case (his Counsel wrote a letter explaining the legal significance and basis for the appeal).

Unfortunately, On November 25, 2009, the federal appeals court in San Francisco upheld the conviction on all 17 counts.

Having been incarcerated sine March 2004, Amr has served close to six years of his sentence (one year served in isolation). Amr is now currently held in custody at the U.S. Penitentiary in Safford, Arizona, and among the in-mate population.
