Man Sentenced for Fraud

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) A northeast Kansas man has been sentenced to more than a year in prison on a federal bank fraud charge.
The U.S. Attorney’s office said Tuesday that Kevin Mahoney, 44, of Stilwell, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. He was sentenced to 15 months in prison and was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.

Prosecutors say Mahoney admitted lying on loan applications he submitted to mortgage lenders to fraudulently obtain loans for several Kansas City area properties.
