On the eve of the fourth annual Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Pasquale Rotella of Insomniac, Inc. and husband to Vegas performer Holly Madison, has been banned by the Las Vegas City Council from visiting local night clubs and taverns in which he has a financial stake. Rotella is facing white collar crimes charges in California for bribery and conspiracy to commit embezzlement. The City Council voted Wednesday to ban Rotella from visiting Commonwealth and Park on Freemont, two local establishments in which he is an investor.
Rotella and two other individuals were accused of paying events managers in Los Angeles under the table so that they could get better access to venues for events in the area. Specifically, those involved are charged with making payments to employees of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in a white collar crime scenario developed to make it easier for Insomniac to gain access to the venue for events similar to the Electric Daisy Carnival. These types of fraud crimes are serious, and the Las Vega City Counsel believes they are being proactive in banning Rotella from visiting his Vegas venues unless and until the charges have worked their way through the justice system.
Beyond bans from certain properties, like those imposed here, individuals charged with white collar crimes in Las Vegas or the surrounding area may be facing long prison terms, substantial fines, restitution, probation, community service, and a lifetime of reporting as a convicted felon. The severity of the sentence for those convicted of white collar crimes will depend on the specific facts and circumstances of your case, along with any prior crimes of a similar fashion and any other specific indices of recidivism.
Further, fraud is a commonly charged white collar crime which can result in both federal and state prosecutions. Penalties can include huge fines and the imposition of extensive restitution, inclusive of interest. If you, or someone you know has been charged with a white collar crime like fraud, it is imperative that you get a skilled attorney on your team right away to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the pendency of your case.
