Thievin’ Philly Lawyer’s Carnage of Estate Fund Theft, Tax Evasion and Pandemic Loan Fraud Remains Out on Bond

Jonathan Olivetti has been stiffin’ the IRS for $133k since 2011, finched $138k of monies due to clients and $42k in PPP loans.

Philadelphia Attorney Charged With Pandemic Relief Fraud

His existing criminal trial does not include these charges so we assume that this will allow him to stay out on bond anticipating another plea agreement, rather than deal with the first criminal case first and lock him up. We’ll be tracking this case closely.

DEC 15, 2021 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: DEC 16, 2021

SCRANTON- The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on December 13, 2021, Jonathan Olivetti, age 41, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was charged by criminal information with wire fraud in connection with a scheme to obtain COVID-19 pandemic relief money he was not entitled to receive.

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, the information alleges that between June 18, 2020 and February 2021, Olivetti, a licensed attorney, applied for two Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and two Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) on behalf of Olivetti Law, LLC. Both loan programs were authorized or expanded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act — a federal law enacted in March 2020 that provided emergency financial assistance to millions of Americans suffering financial difficulties from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With respect to the PPP loans, Olivetti allegedly made materially false representations by inflating the payroll of Olivetti Law, LLC in the on-line applications and received $41,600 based upon those false representations. In addition, Olivetti made application for two two Economic Injury Disaster Loans (“EIDL”) which were to provide low-interest financing (including forgivable $10,000 advances) to small businesses experiencing substantial financial disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Olivetti’s EIDL loan applications each sought approximately $62,500 on behalf of Olivetti Law, LLC. The applications contained inflated gross receipts of Olivetti Law and ultimately were not approved by the SBA.

On May 17, 2021, the Attorney General established the COVID-19 Fraud Enforcement Task Force to marshal the resources of the Department of Justice in partnership with agencies across government to enhance efforts to combat and prevent pandemic-related fraud. The Task Force bolsters efforts to investigate and prosecute the most culpable domestic and international criminal actors and assists agencies tasked with administering relief programs to prevent fraud by, among other methods, augmenting and incorporating existing coordination mechanisms, identifying resources and techniques to uncover fraudulent actors and their schemes, and sharing and harnessing information and insights gained from prior enforcement efforts. For more information on the Department’s response to the pandemic, please visit https://www.justice.gov/coronavirus.

Anyone with information about allegations of attempted fraud involving COVID-19 can report it by calling the Department of Justice’s National Center for Disaster Fraud (NCDF) Hotline at 866-720-5721 or via the NCDF Web Complaint Form at: https://www.justice.gov/disaster-fraud/ncdf-disaster-complaint-form.

The case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jenny P. Roberts is prosecuting the case.

Criminal Informations are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.

A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

The maximum penalty under federal law for this offense is 20 years of imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is also required to consider and weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense; the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the public and provide for the defendant’s educational, vocational and medical needs. For these reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the potential sentence for a specific defendant.

ORDER granting 26 Motion to Continue as to Jonathan Olivetti (1). Pre-Sentence Conference set for October 29, 2021, is hereby continued and is rescheduled to occur on January 20, 2022, at 11:30 a.m. Government counsel shall initiate the call when all parties are on the line to chambers at 717-221-3970. Signed by Honorable Jennifer P. Wilson.

President Donald Trump has nominated Perry County attorney Jennifer Philpott Wilson to serve as a judge for the U.S. Middle District Court of Pennsylvania.

The nomination requires U.S. Senate confirmation to become final. If appointed, Wilson would fill a slot that became open when Judge Yvette Kane assumed senior judge status last fall.

Wilson is a partner in Philpott Wilson LLP in Duncannon, a practice that handles criminal and civil matters, including family law. Her father Jerry Philpott is her law partner.

She is an adjunct professor at the Penn State University Dickinson School of Law, where she teaches a course on written advocacy and judicial opinions.

Before joining the Duncannon firm Wilson served as a trial attorney in the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. She formerly served as a law clerk to Judge Jon P. McCalla of the U.S. Western District Court of Tennessee and for Judge Julio M. Fuentes of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit.

Philpott earned a bachelor of arts degree from Swarthmore College and her law degree from the Brooklyn Law School.
