Man Sentenced on Fraud Charges


KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) A Johnson County man was sentenced to 15 months in prison and ordered to pay $1.3 million in restitution for his part in a scheme to fraudulently obtain millions of dollar in mortgage loans.

Federal prosecutors say 55-year-old John T. Bradfield, of Overland Park, was sentenced Tuesday. He admitted that he submitted fraudulent information to mortgage lenders.

One co-defendant, Paul Hartfield of Overland Park, obtained $4.9 million in loans to rehabilitate more than 40 homes in the Kansas City metro area. After he stopped rehabilitating the homes in October 2006, he persuaded friends and family to buy properties he claimed to fix.

Hartfield was sentenced last October to about six years in prison and ordered to pay $2.6 million restitution.

Two other men were convicted in the scheme.
