Prison Time for Convicted Escrow Officer

Kesha Danine Fortune Haynie, who facilitated the mortgage fraud crimes of Garret Griffith Gillilland and builder Tony Symmes, has been sentenced to serve a prison term for three years and 10 months.

Haynie, 41, received her sentence as a result of being convicted on two counts of mail fraud, for which she was prosecuted by the office of U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner. She was the operator of Empire Mortgage, located in Chico. The jury that convicted her was shown evidence that Haynie gave home purchasers cash kickback from Tony Symmes in consideration for purchasing their deliberately overpriced homes. Some of the overage was distributed to the homebuyers; Kesha Haynie and her co-conspirators split the rest. Straw buyers were involved with some of the purchases.
