Instructions and Help about Form 2220 Accounting

Hi everyone this is justin bieber Nia what you see behind you is the baseball field at University of Southern California my alma mater and I'm showing this in the background because well I made a mistake last Monday i completed my 100th career lecture at USC my first lecture was in September of 09 and last week I did my 100 lecture to celebrate it I went over to the baseball field and wanted to get creative and have some fun and essentially just posting a prompt to video following this lecture I thought ever everything went incredibly well until after enduring a lot of traffic in Los Angeles I pulled in to Katsuya a sushi restaurant in Encino was enjoying some sake went to listen to the video and realize there was no audio apparently I can film the video and give a hundred lectures but i'm unable to flip a switch and therefore nothing was actually recorded so just to memorialize it or keep for posterity so to speak i wanted to film this video and keep a plane in the background although you won't hear anything but i'm going to essentially recreate and go over exactly what i said during these lectures and when i open up some of these lectures or some of the you know through some of the hundred lectures i did at USC I'll open up the lecture and ask some of these business students at the marshall school of accounting what do you think of white collar crime sentences are they too long i shared my story is 18 months for what I did for securities fraud long enough I'll talk about some of my other you know clients who share his stories I'm allowed to share and at the marshall school students are required to read ethics in motion my second book and i can't tell you that every student buys the book about but about half of them do and i'll say okay you read chapter 3 joshua CFO from chicago was 21 months fair you read about my client Brandon a doctor was five years fair and when I asked this question in the beginning of the lecture many of them say I think the sentences should be longer of there not long enough for the damage they caused and then sometimes at the end of the lecture after I've told the story and hammer home the massive consequence is that a company what colour crime damaged reputation the losing of licenses the pain in shame creating victims etc they'll say wow you know the prison term might not be the hardest part it really is a life long enduring stigma that accompanies this conviction and I think part of the reason they feel that way is if I may give myself some credit is partly the way that I tell the story and telling of the story is something that I am a huge believer and advise all federal defendants to do to do well it's something that you have to own Intel organically and be able to tell as easily as you breathe or brush your teeth I am convinced of that and what I learned at the end of these videos excuse me at the end of some of these lectures is when these students will say these aren't bad people wow these I could have done that and I remind them my saying I'm not saying you could have done that but I I do believe in which to express here in this video that while good people do make bad decisions without considering the influence on their life some defendants take it to a whole nother level in the way that they prepare and that's something that students touched on for example and ethics in motion chapter 3 my client Joshua did not have criminal intent by any measure if you were to read this story and I'll happily send you this book it's free you'll read in chapter 3 I wrote that my client had access to two million dollars a day in capital as the CFO of this company but would let him away was some slow some slow poor bad decisions over a period of time where he was submitting expenses through a company charge card and some of those expenses were personal and time he had the company reimbursed them through some rationalizations he believed he was entitled isn't perks of the profession and just like that it's mail fraud because the company put sent the paid the bill every single month to American Express in that bill included some personal expenses that he claimed were business just like that no criminal intent he's on the wrong side of prison boundaries compare that to my client Steve in chapter 6 a tax accountant out of Florida who from our very first call said Justin from the day I got into business I was out to skirt the laws to be aggressive to cheat to be an ethical that's the way that I advance my interest to the benefit of my clients when they're paying less in taxes and it grew my business so the students were amazed at these two stories of one client that had no criminal intent who just made some bad decisions while giving in to some of these useless rationalizations my client in chapter 3 got 21 months compared to my client in chapter 6 who got a year in a day they both hired me at different parts of the journey but it proves the point whether you had criminal intent or you did not had criminal intent the criminal justice system can treat you the same way and I could so many calls from great defendants wonderful people fathers husbands business men and women who will say I did not have criminal intent more wake up with intentions to defraud and to
