Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Kentucky at Covington.
No. 2:18-cr-00010-1—David L. Bunning, District Judge.
Decided and Filed: April 17, 2020
Before: MOORE, KETHLEDGE, and BUSH, Circuit Judges.
JOHN K. BUSH, Circuit Judge. This is a case of an elderly couple sadly taken advantage
of by their great-grandson, who defrauded them and stole his great-grandfather’s identity through
abuse of modern banking technology.
Adam C. Vance was convicted of one count of access-device fraud, in violation of
18 U.S.C. § 1029(a)(5), and two counts of aggravated identity theft, in violation of 18 U.S.C.
§ 1028A(a)(1). He was sentenced to 65 months’ imprisonment and three years’ supervised
release. On appeal, Vance argues that the district court (1) failed to make adequate findings of
fact after his bench trial under Fed. R. Crim P. 23(c); (2) improperly denied his motion for
judgment of acquittal; and (3) failed to correctly calculate the loss amount connected to his
charges, under Sentencing Guidelines § 2B1.1. We AFFIRM.
