CLEVELAND - A former FBI informant has been sentenced to more than four years in prison on his guilty plea in a second mortgage fraud case in Ohio.
Forty-year-old Paul Tomko of Cleveland was sentenced Thursday in federal court on counts including wire fraud in a $327,000 scam.
The government learned about the fraud when his probation officer in the earlier case discovered a mortgage business being run out of Tomko's home.
He had been put on probation for three years after pleading guilty in 2009 in a $1.2 million mortgage fraud case.
The earlier case involved scams similar to the ones that agents had paid him $27,000 to help investigate in 2007 and 2008.
