Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster announces plea in mortgage forgery case

JEFFERSON CITY • Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster announced a plea deal today in a high-profile mortgage forgery case.

Lorraine Brown, president of DocX — a Florida-based document processor that assisted lenders with thousands of mortgages — will be sentenced to two to three years in prison for charges of forgery, perjury and making a false declaration.

According to Koster, Brown instructed employees who were not authorized to sign mortgage documents to sign the names of others who were authorized.

“Surrogate-signing crosses the threshold into criminal activity,” Koster said. “This agreement brings to justice the person most responsible for these activities and upholds the principle that when you sign your name to a legal document, it matters.”

1. while it's great to have a conviction..

2 or 3 years is a travesty.. not enough of a message to those who broke the law... the proverbial slap on the wrist..

2. I agree, but half a loaf is better

than nothing and it does clearly define what was done as criminal. Hopefully the other State AG's will build on this start.
