The case involved a money laundering conspiracy which included mortgage fraud and identity theft.
According to his plea agreement, the scheme involved the purchase of three homes in Yucca Valley in a partnership with his brother-in-law, Jubran Dighlawi, and a third man, Ata Dighlawi.
Investigators say the conspirators would buy the homes.
They would use false information to get federally insured loans, and sell the homes at inflated prices.
Alleged co-conspirator Jubran Dighlawi, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy, bank fraud, loan fraud, aggravated identity theft, and money laundering. Jubran Dighlawi is currently a fugitive.
