Back in July I posted about a local Mortgage Broker who was being convicted of mortgage fraud. I have gotten several comments from friends of his that he was innocent and his name was just being taken through the mud. Well today in the paper this is what I found:
U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas said Anthony Dehaney, 57, led a plan that cost banks millions and his sentence should send a signal to others tempted to skirt the law "to make a quick easy buck."
The sentence--among the toughest to date in a mortgage fraud case--exceeds a prosecutor's recommendation for a roughly five-year prison term. Dehaney, a Jamaican national, will likely be deported after completing his sentence, said prosecutor Jeffrey Kay.
