JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Carrollton woman was sentenced to 2.5 years in federal prison without parole for a bank fraud scheme that involved using her neighbor’s house to obtain a loan.
Prosecutors say 65-year-old Carol Joyce Noble also was ordered Thursday to pay $267,924 in restitution.
Noble was convicted in March of two counts of bank fraud. Prosecutors say Noble defrauded Central Trust Bank in Jefferson City to obtain a $185,000 loan to buy a convenience store in Stover.
To obtain the loan, Noble changed the address of her home to that of a neighbor’s house, without the neighbor’s knowledge. She met the appraiser at her neighbor’s home and the received an appraisal $100,000 higher than the value of Noble’s property.
