Prosecutors Plan To Recommend 25/27 Year Prison Sentence For Rubashkin

Former Agriprocessors plant executive Sholom Rubashkin could face 21 to 27 years in prison for his role in a massive financial fraud scheme, a federal prosecutor said Wednesday.

Prosecutors plan to recommend a prison sentence that would range from 262 to 327 months, according to court papers filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Peter Deegan Jr.

The suggested sentence – which a judge can accept or ignore – is based on federal guidelines that consider the number of victims, Rubashkin’s specific role in the crime and other factors.

Rubashkin was convicted in November of 86 counts of financial fraud for his role in the bank- and document-fraud scandal at Agriprocessors Inc. The plant’s former vice president is expected to challenge his convictions before the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.
