Utah man's sentencing set in mortgage fraud scheme

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON (AP) — A six-year mortgage fraud investigation linked to a Putnam County subdivision is coming to a conclusion with the scheduled sentencing of a Utah man.

Raymond P. Morris of South Weber, Utah, is set to learn his fate Oct. 29 in federal court in Charleston. He faced up to 30 years for his earlier guilty plea to wire fraud and bank fraud.

Court records show Morris and another defendant, Michael Hurd of Salt Lake City, were involved in a scheme with Deborah L. Joyce of Hurricane. Joyce was sentenced to nearly four years in federal prison for her role in the sale of property in a Hurricane subdivision at inflated prices.

Hurd was sentenced to two years and three months for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud.
