GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - The former president of a mortgage document processing company has been sentenced for racketeering.
Lorraine Brown was sentenced to 40 months to 20 years in a Michigan state prison. That will be served concurrently with any sentence received for federal crimes.
Brown, 51, pleaded guilty in February in a Kent County circuit courtroom.
She orchestrated a robo-signing scheme in which employees fraudulently signed another authorized person's name on mortgage documents to expedite foreclosures.
She also faced federal charges in Florida and state charges in Missouri.
