Montecastro Mortgage Fraud Case Delayed

The $142 million mortgage fraud and securities fraud trial for Hendrix Montecastro and his mother Helen Pedrino have been moved to October 9.

Hendrix Montecastro and Helen Pedrino were arrested in 2009 on charges they were part of a real estate investment fraud conspiracy headed by James Duncan. The real outcome was that many investors lost their savings, retirement accounts and even their homes as a result of alleged false promises to earn large returns.

James Duncan and defendants Maurice McLeod, Charlie Sung Choi, Thuan Nhan Du and Cindi Gayle Kelly have already pleaded guilty.
