Las Vegas – Wednesday and Thursday bring two more defendants in the growing investigation into Las Vegas’ homeowner association fraud scheme. Denise Keser, 44, pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. Keser, a Las Vegas property management company employee, admitted to being a part of the scheme to take control of HOA boards and push for construction defect lawsuits against builders. Keser’s sentencing is July 26.
Former HOA board member, Daniel Solomon, pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. Solomon, 39, served on the Vistana condominium complex HOA board. He admitted he was a “straw purchaser” of one of the condos in order to be elected to the board. Solomon will be sentenced in February.
All defendants who have pleaded guilty have agreed to testify for prosecutors so they can indict others involved.
