Real estate investor sentenced for money laundering
BRANDON — A 42-year-old Brandon real estate investor who alerted federal authorities to his role in a mortgage fraud scheme has been sentenced to one year and a day in prison.
The Clarion-Ledger reports David M. Strain was sentenced yesterday on a charge of money laundering.
U.S. District Judge William Barbour Jr. and federal prosecutor Carla Clark acknowledged Strain’s cooperation that led to co-defendant, Ridgeland mortgage broker Gene Bradford, receiving a four-year prison sentence in May.
Prosecutors say Strain admitted his role in the scheme that resulted in about $900,000 in fraudulent mortgage loans.
Strain must report to prison Oct. 18.
