Former Mortgage Company President Sentenced for Forgery
JEFFERSON CITY - Lorraine Brown, former president of mortgage lending company DocX, LLC, was sentenced to three years in prison for her role in filing fraudulently signed and notarized documents.
Attorney General Chris Koster announced Friday that Brown was sentenced by judges in Boone and Jackson counties. In June, Brown received a separate five-year federal setence for similar charges.
Brown was sentenced for the forgery and false declaration charges related to mortgage documents on Monday, August 19 in a Boone County court, and sentenced for perjury on Thursday, August 22 in Jackson County.
The charges were the result of a months-long investigation into a "surrogate-signing" scheme that introduced thousands of questionable mortgage documents into the market, according to the attorney general's office.
