Ex- Gulf­stream exec gets 11 years

Los Angeles Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

A for­mer Gulf­stream Aerospace ex­ec­u­tive has been sen­tenced to more than 11 years in prison af­ter he ac­knowl­edged em­bez­zling more than $ 10 mil­lion from the com­pany to fund a lav­ish lifestyle that pros­e­cu­tors say in­cluded es­corts and two homes.

Marvin Jay Caukin was sen­tenced in fed­eral court in Los An­ge­les af­ter he apol­o­gized and pleaded for mercy.

De­fense at­tor­ney Mark Werks­man says the 66- yearold Caukin is dev­as­tated by the sen­tence.

Werks­man had ar­gued that a lengthy prison term at Caukin’s age amounts to a death sen­tence and would be in­sult­ing to the vic­tims of vi­o­lent crimes.

Pros­e­cu­tors asked that Caukin get 12 years, say­ing he has al­ready been con­victed of em­bez­zling from another com­pany, stole from Gulf­stream for more than a decade and hasn’t re­turned any of the money.
