Lesser Time Sought in Rachel Duncan Case

Prosecutors are trying to get a reduced sentence for Rachel Duncan, the former S.C. Hospitality Association accountant who was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Federal prosecutors are seeking a lesser sentence for Rachel Duncan, a former accountant for the S.C. Hospitality Association, who admitted to wire fraud and tax evasion charges earlier this year, according to an Associated Press article on WLTX. 

Prosecutors have filed court papers seeking a reduced sentence from 30 months to 24 months for her providing information that led to drug arrests in both Richland and Lexington counties, the article said.


She was also ordered Duncan to pay $367,508.84 in restitution to the organization and $85,333 to the Internal Revenue Service.
