Georgetown Varsity Blues Dad Wins by Revealing Rich Kid Perks

Mintz Member, and Co-Chair of the White Collar Defense and Government Investigations Practice, Eóin Beirne was quoted in Sportico in an article on Amin Khoury and his acquittal in the 'Varsity Blues' litigation. Eóin commented, "The odds are very steep for any defendant who goes to trial in a criminal case...That’s certainly part of the calculus for any defendant and defense team... When a defendant can match weight with the government and make sure the jury is properly constituted...the evidence comes in evenly and the evidentiary rulings don’t favor the government...The odds of an acquittal, then, become 'significantly improved'."
