US v. Fincher, No. 09-1766

By FindLaw Staff on February 01, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In defendant's appeal from a district court's order requiring him to reimburse the U.S. Treasury for the legal services provided to him under the Criminal Justice Act, the order is affirmed where: 1) a conveyance of property made by defendant was voidable as fraudulent because it was made with the actual intent to hinder the government from receiving payment and it was made without receiving reasonably equivalent value at a time when defendant reasonably should have realized that he might incur a criminal fine that he would be unable to pay; and 2) the district court correctly concluded that defendant and his wife could exempt only eighty acres of their land from legal process.
