From the BBJ:
A former Boston attorney has been convicted of mortgage fraud involving more than a dozen properties throughout the city’s residential neighborhoods of Dorchester, Roxbury and Jamaica Plain.
Charles R. Sammon, 37, of West Pittston, Penn., pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Richard Stearns to 13 counts of wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering, in connection with the mortgage fraud scheme that occurred in 2006 and 2007.
Prosecutors alleged Sammon participated in at least 13 fraudulent real estate transactions involving triple-deckers in the Dorchester, Roxbury and Jamaica Plain neighborhoods. For eight of those transactions, Sammon served as the closing attorney representing the lender. For the other five, Sammon participated as the seller of the real estate.
