According to the
Chronicle, the government has recommended that four of five federal
convictions against Howard be overtuned because it doesn’t believe the charges

convicted Howard on four counts of conspiracy and wire fraud based on a flawed
theory presented by prosecutors.
Howard was convicted of the five counts of fraud, conspiracy, and falsifying
records in May this year.
