A Livingston NJ woman will be spending time behind bars after she was convicted on charges of theft and money laundering.
The suspect is a 52-year-old woman from Livingston, New Jersey. She was accused of conspiring with other individuals to steal almost $900,000 from a money lender. The suspect allegedly committed identity theft when filing mortgage loan applications. The identity fraud included the suspect listing false information about real estate deals so that she could secure loans.
After an investigation into the alleged fraudulent activity, Essex County NJ prosecutors filed criminal charges against the suspect, including conspiracy, money laundering, and theft by deception.
In February 2014, an Essex County grand jury indicted the suspect on the very serious charges.
The case later went to trial in Essex County Superior Court in Newark, NJ. At the end of the trial, the jury found the suspect guilty.
One of the other suspects in the case, a 41-year-old Saddle Brook man, is also headed to prison. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges for money laundering.
