GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An Ada man has been sentenced for a 2007 mortgage fraud that netted him and others more than $800,000.

Seamus Dillon was sentenced Thursday to two years in federal prison, as well as three years of supervised release, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. He was also ordered to pay $755,693 in restitution.

In 2007, Dillon and others defrauded a bank in connection with a mortgage for a residence on Indian Mill Creek Drive NW in Grand Rapids.

Authorities say the group lied to defraud their lender, and got away with about $850,000.

Dillon pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mortgage fraud.
