Ohio ‘Food Stamp Millionaire’ Found Guilty of Welfare Fraud
A white and wealthy Ohio man was found guilty of accepting more than $8,300 in food stamps and other welfare benefits, including Medicaid, over a two-year period for his suburban family.

The question now is, will he actually spend time in jail, or will being rich and white win out yet again?
However, as WKYC notes, Ohio law does suggest probation for low-level, first-time offenders, and Mahvi was convicted on a fifth-degree felony charge for food stamp fraud and a misdemeanor for making false or misleading statements in his Medicaid application, so whether or not he will receive adequate sentencing is yet to be seen.

Last year, Mahvi’s little scheme blew wide open after investigators revealed that he failed to disclose the entirety of his wealth, including his $800,000 Russell Township home, an in-ground swimming pool, multiple cars, stabled horses and undeveloped property that is tagged at being worth tens of millions of dollars in the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Lucia.

Judge finds Geauga County 'food stamp millionaire' guilty of welfare fraud |
CHARDON - Prosecutors say they will seek jail time for a wealthy Geauga County man convicted of fraudulently obtaining food stamps and Medicaid for his suburban family.

Pascal Mahvi, the so-called “Food Stamp Millionaire,” was convicted Friday of two fraud-related charges stemming from his acceptance of more than $8,300 in food stamps and other welfare benefits during a two-year span that ended with his arrest last year.

Mahvi and his attorney declined comment after Friday’s verdict. Mahvi is expected to be sentenced in four to six weeks.

Prosecutor James Flaiz said he will recommend that Mahvi serve some time in jail.

“We’re absolutely going to recommend time behind bars,” Flaiz said. “I think people have to understand, if you abuse the system that taxpayers have set up to help the poor, and you defraud that system, there needs to be consequences.”

Mahvi, 66, faces a maximum sentence of 18 months in prison, according to prosecutors. He could also be ordered to make restitution for the welfare benefits he received.

Ohio law, however, suggests probation for low-level, first-time offenders. Mahvi was convicted of a fifth-degree felony for food stamp fraud and a misdemeanor for making false or misleading statements in his application for Medicaid.

WKYC legal analyst and attorney Adam VanHo said Mahvi is unlikely to go to a state prison.

“For as egregious as this fraud was, Mr. Mahvi will most likely never see the inside of a prison cell,” VanHo said.

Equifax Suffered a Hack Almost Five Months Earlier Than the Date It Disclosed

Equifax Inc. learned about a major breach of its computer systems in March -- almost five months before the date it has publicly disclosed, according to three people familiar with the situation.

According to the person and a Sept. 14 internal memo reviewed by Bloomberg, the gateway linked a test and development site used by the bank’s wealth management division to Equifax, allowing the two entities to share information digitally.

The discovery suggests that the attackers may have been trying to piggyback off of Equifax’s connections to large banks and other financial institutions as a backdoor way to hack those entities and gain access to sensitive partner systems. The company spokesperson said Equifax is “working diligently with our bank partners to assess and mitigate any impact to their operations.”
