Judge sentences Norton to prison for mortgage fraud

Rollo Richard “Rick” Norton II was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Marilyn L. Huff to 24 months in prison for his role in a San Diego mortgage fraud case in which a condominium complex was used in a series of sales and resales to remove equity. Norton, the subject of several posts in the California Real Estate Fraud Report, must also pay restitution.

According to the prosecution, Norton was the investment advisor in Ramona who initially purchased an apartment complex located on Crown Point Drive in San Diego, intending to convert it to condominiums. The project ran awry due to mismanagement, the use of straw buyers, with investors and lending institutions being defrauded by the deceptions of Norton and his co-conspirators, two of whom, Scott Greer and Todd Johnson are awaiting their sentences from U.S. District Judge Huff.
