Edna Ledoux Jamieson, 44, Moneta, Virginia, a former employee of Genesis Mansions and licensed real estate agent, who pled guilty in May 2012 to tax charges related to money she earned through her participation in a mortgage fraud scheme, was sentenced in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, Lynchburg.

As previously reported by Mortgage Fraud Blog, the defendant previously waived her right to be indicted and plead guilty to one count of filing a false tax return for FY 2007. Jamieson was sentenced to one-year of probation, a $100 special assessment and 80 hours of community service. She was also ordered to pay back taxes.

Jamieson admitted to receiving a $20,000 good faith payment for serving as a straw purchaser for a home in Moneta, Virginia. The defendant also admitted to earning approximately $300 per week as an employee of Genesis Mansions. The defendant admitted to filing her FY 2007 tax returns without including the $40,033 she earned from Genesis Mansions.

The investigation of the case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Internal Revenue Service. Assistant United States Attorneys Charlene Day and C. Patrick Hogeboom III are prosecuting the case for the United States.
