Michigan Supreme Court Justice Who Committed Short Sale Fraud Wants Home Confinement

Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway, who resigned her post on the bench after pleading guilty to one count of bank fraud, is apparently eligible for home confinement.

Hathaway was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison, plus two years probation, by U.S. District Judge John Corbett O’Meara in May 2013. Hathaway transferred her home in Windermere, Florida to a relative so that she could qualify for a short sale of her home in Grosse Point Park in Michigan. After the short sale, the Florida home was transferred back into Hathaway’s name, which of course was not disclosed to the lender approving the short sale (short sale fraud).

There are previous, more detailed, articles about Justice Hathaway that you can find by using the search tool on the California Real Estate Fraud Report.
