FBI Agent Goes to Prison for Mortgage Fraud

A man who came from a poor family and rose to serve with the Los Angeles Police Department and then the FBI has seen all his hard work crumble.

Darin McAllister, a church-going, Bible-clutching law enforcement officer, has been sentenced to four years in prison for lying on his loan applications (loan fraud, mortgage fraud).

After the FBI transferred him to Nashville, McAllister and his wife used the profit from selling their Los Angeles home to purchase a new one and to purchase, rehabilitate and rent out duplexes. When the real estate market began its descent, the McAllisters lost tenants and fell behind in the loan payments for the properties. That’s when bank examiners took a closer look at the loan applications he had signed and contacted the FBI as well as the Office of the Inspector General for the Justice Department which charged him with 19 counts of wire fraud, false declarations and other crimes.

Read the original story (a fascinating one) in the Los Angeles Times.
