Gina Marie Tarallo, 44, formerly of Rancho Cucamonga, California, was sentenced on April 14, 2011, to 365 days in the county jail as part of a plea agreement. The court ordered restitution. Tarallo pleaded to one felony count of Grand Theft and one felony count of Filing a Forged Document with the County Recorder’s Office.
In 2007, Tarallo forged the victim’s signature on a Grant Deed acquiring title to the victim’s Rancho Cucamonga, California property. The victim had no knowledge of the Grant Deed until months later when she was contacted by a credit card company for lack of payment. The victim confronted Tarallo who admitted to the forgery.
In November 2010, investigators from the District Attorney’s Real Estate Fraud Unit extradited Tarallo from New Hampshire for the real estate fraud charges. The case was investigated by the Real Estate Fraud Unit.
