As set forth in these documents, I participated in a conspiracy to defraud the United States by misrepresenting to the United States that my wife, Stacey Pomrenke, had alcohol addiction issues when she did not. As a result of these misrepresentations, Stacey Pomrenke was admitted to the Residential Drug Abuse Treatment Program (“RDAP”), an intensive drug and alcohol abuse treatment program operated by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, during her incarceration. As a result of her completion of RDAP, Stacey Pomrenke’s term of imprisonment was reduced by seven months and one day.”
