3proceed to the sentencing.THE COURT: All right. I'll hear from you at thistime.MR. BLACK: Thank you, Your Honor.Mrs. Curran accepts full responsibility for theseoffenses that she's pled guilty to. She blames nobody butherself for being in this position, about being charged andbeing subjected to sentencing before the Court today.However, we believe that there are mitigatingcircumstances that make her case different than virtually allof the others who were prosecuted or not prosecuted undersimilar circumstances as her with these offshore accounts, andwe believe that she has shown an extraordinary acceptance ofresponsibility. And, Your Honor, to go through just -- I'm not goingto go through the same things we wrote in our sentencingmemorandum, but I do want to highlight a couple of issues.First is that this is a woman who was unsophisticatedin financial matters, had no training in finance or taxes orhandling even her own personal accounts. For the first 30years of her marriage she did not even see the monthly bankstatements. Everything was handled by her husband Mortimer,Senior, who was a financial analyst, an investment banker, aman who was very well versed in finances, and he's the one whohandled all of their accounts.12345678910111213141516171819202122232425
