Guilty Plea for Las Vegas Fake Liens

Rachel Dollar —  October 26, 2015 — 2 Comments

Rodney Taylor, 51, Las Vegas, Nevada, pleaded guilty to two counts of false representation concerning title. Taylor participated in a scheme to claim liens on real estate in Las Vegas, Nevada by filing false documents. The fraudulent acts were committed between March and September 2012.

In addition to claiming non-existent liens on property, Taylor was also accused of filing false claims of ownership for real estate with the county recorder’s office. After filing these claims, Taylor applied for and received public funds from the Southern Nevada Housing Authority in exchange for renting to Section 8 tenants. The state is seeking restitution of over $45,000 for victimized individuals and state agencies.

Fraudulent real estate claims have a devastating impact on Nevada families and their homes,” said Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt. “Prosecutors in my office will continue to ensure that those who attempt to defraud the public receive justice.”

False representation concerning title is punishable by up to five years of imprisonment and a fine of no more than $10,000. The sentencing hearing for Taylor is scheduled for February 11, 2016, in the Eighth Judicial District Court.

The investigation of this case was a collaborative effort between the Attorney General’s Fraud Unit, the City of North Las Vegas and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Deputy Attorney General Daniel Westmeyer prosecuted this case.

  1. We are an Afro-American couple. We have with proof, been submitting claims with the Nevada Attorney General’s office under NRS 295.395 since the year 2014. The Attorney General’s only repeated response is that our complaint will be forwarded to the relevant investigative unit. N.R.S. 205.395 is the statute titled False Representation Concerning Title. The perpetrators in our case are all of the majority race. We have not only presented our 205.395 claims to the Nevada Attorney General, but we also tried to prosecute the claims in State and Federal Court. The Federal action was dismissed by Order of Judge Gloria Navarro, whose order read that our claims failed to state a claim for which relief could be granted. She made that remarkable ruling in the face of and with total disregard of N.R.S. 205.395, False Representation Concerning Title. It should not be that Afro-Americans are prosecuted for the offense, while Caucasians are not. We can be reached @ The recorded documents filed in violation of 205.395, cannot be more conspicuous in meeting the elements of the claim.
