DALLAS (AP) – A North Texas lawyer has been sentenced to seven months in prison and must repay more than $2.1 million for his role in a bank loan fraud scam.
A federal judge in Dallas on Monday sentenced 51-year-old Jerry Goh of Allen. Goh last April pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony related to the fraud scheme.
Prosecutors say Goh, with law offices in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, acted as an escrow officer and allowed the fraudulent transfer of some funds involved in a loan.
Goh must report to prison by May 26.
Two other North Texas residents have pleaded guilty and await sentencing in the case involving fraud against the lender — Prosper Bank.
