Sandra Artichoker, 51, has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly falsifying her spouse’s employment status on a bank loan application and thereafter receiving funds.

The defendant was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 5, 2012, for bank fraud. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 11, 2012, and pleaded not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 30 years’ imprisonment and/or a $1,000,000 fine. The charge is merely an accusation, and Artichoker is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced the indictment.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins is prosecuting the case. Artichoker was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not yet been set.

  1. I think that I’m in the same boat, in 2005 myself and my ex purchase a home using my income because she did not have a job but had better credit than I. two year ago, she kicked me out of the house because my name did not appear on the deed. Now I’m finding out that I have been part of a scam and can’t do anything about it. anyone out there no anything I can do to get back what I called home for the last 7 years.
