Robert M. Turner Convicted of Fraudulent Broker License


(Madison) Robert M. Turner of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin was found guilty in Dane County Circuit Court of three counts of acting as a mortgage broker without a license. The charges stemmed from a cease and desist issued by the Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) Division of Mortgage Banking. Assistant District Attorney Ann Sayles prosecuted the case.

After investigation by Jennifer Davenport, a DFI Mortgage Banking Examiner, DFI turned the case over to the District Attorney's (DA) office and charges were then filed against Turner. As a result of the conviction Turner was placed on probation for two years and ordered to pay restitution to his victims.
