Randolph Goldberg's appeal rejected by U.S. Court of Appeals

CREATED Aug. 8, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Disgraced TV bankruptcy lawyer Randolph Goldberg has been dealt another blow by the court.

This time, the U.S. Court of Appeals has rejected his case.

In May, Goldberg was sentenced in federal court to serve at least two years in prison for willful tax evasion. Plus, an additional three years on supervised release.

He had to surrender his law license for two years, pay $720,000 in restitution to the U.S. Government and pay a $40,000 fine.

It's after pleading guilty to filing false and fraudulent tax returns for himself and his law firm, and trying to hide proceeds from his law firm in a personal bank account.

He appealed the judge's sentence saying it wasn't in keeping with his plea agreement. But this week, the court dismissed the appeal.

Goldberg is scheduled to report to prison on Aug. 21.
