United States v. Agarwal

The Third Circuit affirmed the defendant’s judgment of sentence, ruling that his plea was knowing and voluntary. The defendant pleaded guilty to violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The District Court imposed a jail sentence, attributing a loss amount of nearly $3million. The defendant appealed and argued that his plea was unknowing because he could not have reasonably foreseen the amount in losses that the Court would attribute to his crime. The Third Circuit affirmed and ruled that the defendant’s plea agreement notified him that the loss amount was disputed. Furthermore, the defendant waived his right to appeal the sentence when he signed the plea agreement.
