A North Texas lawyer has been sentenced to seven months in prison and must repay more than $2.1 million for his role in a bank loan fraud scam.
A federal judge in Dallas on Monday sentenced 51-year-old Jerry Goh, of Allen. Last April Goh pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony, or concealing another person's felonious act, related to the fraud scheme.
Prosecutors said Goh, with law offices in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, acted as an escrow officer and allowed the fraudulent transfer of some funds involved in a loan.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Goh must report to prison by May 26.
Two other North Texas residents have pleaded guilty and await sentencing in the case involving fraud against the lender — Prosper Bank.
