What causes an individual to take risks he never would have before imagined? The Wall Street trader, the healthcare executive, attorneys, doctors, chief financial officers, chief executive officers and business owners often have a few things in common. Just like drugs and alcohol, making money illegally, through fraud and other means, can be addictive. Competition among professionals fuel the fire under this addiction and can result in individuals committing crimes. Add the pressures on the wealthy to keep up with appearances and the flames continue to mount, driving them to commit fraudulent acts and ultimately their downfall.
During this C-SPAN interview, Andrew talks about his fall from grace and his tumultuous ride from prosecuting attorney to convict. While opioid addiction played a role in his fall, other factors were at play. Like everyone else facing incarceration, he had no idea what was in store for him.
