KTVUTV in Springfield, Missouri tells MHProNews.com a woman who collected money for the sale of modular and manufactured homes she never delivered has been sentenced to eight years in prison. Convicted in October on seven counts of fraud, Edna Kay Jackson, owner of Dogwood Homes, allegedly swindled eleven Dogwood customers. She also brokered home sales and did not give the seller or the bank their share of the proceeds. Her lawyer was pleased because she could have received 28 years behind bars. Her sentence was not long enough according to the daughter of an elderly man who lost his life savings to Jackson. She and her son have been ordered to repay $1.28 million restitution to victims of the fraud.
