Ex-banker gets tax fraud verdict overturned because of lying juror

Gavel

An ex-Deutsche Bank broker found guilty in a massive tax fraud got his conviction tossed on Monday because one of the jurors who found him and others guilty lied about nearly every aspect of her life.

The New York Post reports that Catherine Conrad claimed to be a law-abiding housewife when she was actually a suspended lawyer and alcoholic who was once arrested for punching a cop and stealing a bag of shrimp from a convenience store while drunk, court papers state.

Conrad, 45, also lied about her career-criminal husband and even her Bronx address — all in a successful attempt to serve on the blockbuster Manhattan federal court trial in 2011 that found former Deutsche Bank broker David Parse, 53, and three co-defendants guilty of what prosecutors called the largest criminal tax fraud in history.
