Did anyone see where Frank Mendoza ever got sentenced for the SAR disclosure case at Chase Bank in California? I read that his sentencing was supposed to be in May but can't find where it happened or what the sentence ended up being???

According to the Bureau of Prisons website, he is being held at the Long Beach Community Corrections Facility until 12/29/2011. Sounds like he got just 6 months. Sounds like a slap on the wrist for such a crime.

That is the person, looks like he got fined for $25,000 and 6 months prison term (based on release date). The FBI link said that he was facing up to 95 years, so 6 months is a slap on the wrist.

Where the heart is
Slap on the wrist maybe, but do I really want my tax dollars being spent on housing and feeding someone for 95 years for this particular transgression?

Frankly - a $25,000 fine and 6 months in jail should be a good deterrent to use when training people on why they need to zip it regarding SARS.

I just wish it was for simply revealing the SAR and did not have the added complication of soliciting a bribe. That lessons the training impact...darn!
