A Shaler man whose original eight-year sentence was overturned by a federal appeals court was sentenced Monday to six years in prison for his role in a multimillion dollar mortgage fraud scheme. A Pittsburgh federal jury convicted Jason Moreno, 33, on five counts of wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy in September 2013. A former appraiser, Moreno overstated housing values and glossed over problems such as a den of black snakes in one house’s basement so that others in the scheme could obtain loans for more than the properties were worth.
