It looks like the mess that we've come to know as the Plantation Mortgage fraud case aka "Operation Copout" has come to an end. I'm told by a reliable source that this morning at 8:30 am the lone remaining defendant, Joseph Guaracino, is going to change his plea and agree to a 43 month sentence. Considering that the government took away any hope he had of paying for his defense for the retrial and the rumor of new charges being levied against him, cutting a deal seems like the most likely outcome. I'll update as soon as I get confirmation.
