First person sentenced in connection with HOA scheme

LAS VEGAS -- The first defendant to be sentenced in connection with a major homeowners association scheme will spend one year and one day in prison and then spend two years under supervised released.

Kenneth Allen is the first person to be sentenced for his role in the massive scheme to take over HOAs around southern Nevada. He must also pay $139,106 in restitution.

Dozens of defendants in the case struck deals with prosecutors and are awaiting sentencing. The scheme involved taking control of homeowners association boards by putting in select people, who then steered business to favored attorneys and businesses.

Four people charged in the case committed suicide, including lawyers Nancy Quon and David Amesbury.
