THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — In addition to the prison term, John Yeh was ordered to pay $20 million in restitution. Mr. Yeh is the former CEO of deaf services business Viable. He was convicted of conspiring to defraud the Federal Communications Commission’s Video Relay Service program. Mr. Yeh and his firm charged the federal government for illegitimate calls. He was sentenced by federal Judge Joel A. Pisano of the U.S. District court in Trenton, N.J.
Viable vice president Joseph Yeh, John Yeh’s brother, was sentenced to 55 months also order to pay $20 million in restitution. Other Viable executives, Anthony Mowl and Donald Tropp, are scheduled to be sentenced later this month.
Mr. Yeh, was a trustee of Gallaudet University and has received many honors, including Deaf Person of the Year. He has also started a number of very successful businesses. He was well liked and gave back to the community generously.
I’ve been giving Mr. Yeh the benefit of the doubt until now. It is quite clear that that anyone of Mr. Yeh’s caliber — university trustee, business owner — knew exactly what his company was doing the entire time they were defrauding American taxpayers. Mr. Yeh has fallen from grace and now, along with his gang of thugs, has a debt to pay society. Let’s not make excuses for the convict until his debt is paid off, then we’ll talk.
