United States v. Patrick Squires, et al.
On January 28, 2016, following a two-week trial, Joseph D. Mancano, achieved a complete victory for Patrick M. Squires, when a federal court jury in Philadelphia found Mr. Squires not guilty of conspiracy and wire fraud charges. In the matter of United States v. Squires, et al. (Docket No. 15-424), Mr. Squires, a distributor of various custodial and maintenance supplies and services was charged with conspiracy with the maintenance director of the Bristol Township School District to direct business to Mr. Squires and avoid School District purchasing rules. The government also accused Mr. Squires of attempting to conceal his involvement with various of his companies that received work from the School District. At trial, it was established that the investigators ignored exculpatory evidence and avenues of investigation that, if pursued, would have demonstrated Mr. Squires’ innocence. After five (5) hours of deliberation, the jury acquitted Mr. Squires on all charges.
