Rare criminal charge used in mortgage fraud case

In an interesting twist, five individuals were charged with second-degree residential mortgage fraud after they cheated homeowners and banks out of approximately $1.1 million. The specific charge has not been used in their county for five years, making it a surprise to some observing this case. Even in other counties of the state, only 31 individuals have faced charges of mortgage fraud in the first or second degree across those five years.
