Las Vegas Realtor Sentenced for Bankruptcy Fraud Scheme

Former realtor Barbara Jean Dennis “pleaded guilty in February to bankruptcy fraud, admitting that she used the automatic stay provision in bankruptcy proceedings to avoid paying the mortgages, while at the same time, collecting rent from her tenants, according to a Department of Justice news release.” Dennis owned at least 12 real estate properties in Texas and Nevada. “She was sentenced Tuesday to 11 months in prison, two years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a fine of $10,000 and restitution of $83,000. Judge Kent J. Dawson also entered an order restricting Dennis from engaging in real estate business during the period she is on supervised release.”
