Bakersfield Mother-Daughter Team Sentenced in Real Estate Fraud

The mother-daughter team of Alice Kantin (aka Alice Meyer), 69, and Dawn Kantin, 38, is headed off to prison for two and five years respectively for their parts in a real estate fraud case, according to Kern County District Attorney Gorden Isen, who said the pair plead out. The two pleaded no contest to one count of conspiracy to defraud their clients and Dawn Kantin pleaded no contest to falsely acting as a notary. They have also been ordered to pay restitution to their victims.

The daughter’s application to become a notary was denied by the Secretary of State’s office due to a “substantial and material misstatement or omission in the application,” according to a prosecution declaration in the case.

Originally, Alice Kantin and Dawn Kantin were each charged with 44 felonies of conspiracy, embezzlement, theft, notary fraud and forgery in connection with real estate transactions that occurred between 2007 and 2009. Their scheme involved pairing distressed homeowners with renters who were given an option to buy the homes. The homeowners and renters lost everything, while Alice Kantin lined her bank account with $290,000.
