Stephen Pirt, 37, has been sentenced by United States District Judge Troy L. Nunley to two years and one month in prison for his role in a mortgage fraud scheme.
Evidence introduced by prosecutors for the U.S. Attorney’s Office at Pirt’s trial indicated that he and his co-defendant, Erik Hermann Green, submitted false and misleading documentation about their borrowers’ income, assets and employment to New Century Mortgage Co. and that they altered bank documents.
The case was the result of a joint investigation by the Internal Revenue Service — Criminal Investigation and the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael D. Anderson and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Josh F. Sigal.
