Guldi Guilty After Trial For Defrauding Ditech Asks to Delay Surrender 5th Time US Opposes

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 18 – George Guldi was imprisoned in the Marcy Correctional Facility in New York on March 28, 2017 when he received in the mail a notice that a lender "has received your payment in the amount of $253,236.00."

His mind began to whirl. 

 Now Guldi is on trial, presided over by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein.

On January 18, he sat at defense table as audio of his jail calls with Victoria Davidson was played for the jury. 

 In it, Guldi is surprisingly upbeat, laughing frequently. Davidson said, What kind of attorney do you need?"

Guldi replied, "The kind I was."

Davidson says, Ha, ha, who's too smart for his own good." 

 The trial involves the multiply-sued bank Wells Fargo, on which Inner City Press also reports. The prosecutors' gloss: "George Guldi and Victoria Davidson - the defendants are charged with wire fraud, bank fraud, and wire and bank fraud conspiracy in connection with their alleged involvement in 2017 in a scheme to fraudulently induce Ditech Financial LLC, a mortgage lending business, to wire them more than $250,000."

On January 25, Guldi and Victoria Davidson were found guilty on all charges and sentencing set for May 30 and May 31, respectively.

Guldi got 36 months.

In late September 2023, Victoria Davidson's lawyer asked for no jail time for her.

On October 4, Davidson was orally sentenced to nine months in prison, but with the sentencing continued to resolve restitution and "surrender" issues. On January 3, 2024 Davidson's lawyer wrote in asking for bail pending appeal, on the issue that Guldi's "defense acted as a second prosecutor against Ms. Davidson."

On March 18, 2024, the US Attorney's Office opposed what it called Guldi's fifth request to postpone surrender to prison, a request he has also made to the Second Circuit.

The case is US v. Guldi et al., 19-cr-126 (Hellerstein)
