GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A West Michigan woman arrested in July as part of an international fraud scheme bust has reached a deal with authorities.
Candice McGraw was one of the 33 people arrested in the U.S. and Canada, accused of running a fraudulent loan scheme that bilked $2.6 million out of about 2,000 victims from all 50 states.
McGraw entered into a plea agreement with federal authorities in New York City for her part in the scheme.
She agreed to plead guilty to one county of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, court documents show.
The maximum penalty for the crime is 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, a $100 special assessment, and three years of probation.
A few flurries occurred Thursday night. Lows held in the teens and the wind relaxed to the 5 to 10 mph range, with 20s at the Lake Michigan.
On Thursday, the medical examiner's office said CMU student Kelly Markatos died as a result of the eating disorder bulimia.
A memorial marker was unveiled for three young siblings who died in an apartment fire 10 months ago.
