May 27, 2011 - (RealEstateRama) — Former Treasure Valley residents Shane M. Hymas and Laurie Kreschelle Hymas, both age 32, now of American Fork, Utah, were sentenced today in district court in Boise for bank fraud, announced U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson.
U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge sentenced Shane Hymas to five months in prison followed by three years of supervised release. Laurie Hymas was sentenced to one month in prison and will also serve three years of supervision. While on supervised release they will each be required to serve five months of home detention and perform 100 hours of community service. Restitution will be determined at a later date.
The two pleaded guilty to bank fraud on April 1, 2010. According to court documents, they admitted to submitting a false and fraudulent residential loan application to obtain a mortgage from a lender.
The case is related to the ongoing Crestwood mortgage fraud, which involved multiple defendants who bought and sold real estate in order to “flip” it, or gain profits from the sales.
To date, six people have been sentenced in related cases, including Michael J. Hymas, Shauntee K. Ferguson, Christopher R. Georgeson, Stanley J. Ferguson, Brent Bethers, and Paul Redondo. Paul Redondo’s wife Melody pleaded guilty in February to making a false statement to a financial institution. She is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court in Boise on June 13.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with assistance from the Idaho Attorney General’s Office and the Idaho Department of Finance.
