Defense attorney says client charged with biofuel tax fraud got bad legal advice

In New Jersey, the defense attorney for a man charged with participating in a $50 million biofuel tax credit scam says charges should be dropped because his client was given bad legal advice by his previous attorney, claiming conflict of interest kept the original counsel from working to the benefit of his client but instead covering for a member of his legal firm. A federal indictment says the man claimed tax credits for refining UCO into biodiesel although he only partially processed it before sending it on to other companies to complete the refining process. Volumes produced were also very different than the volumes claimed.
