Former Bank of America Vice President Robert Conner will have to pay dearly for the bank and credit card fraud scheme that appears likely to send him to prison.
Conner, whose sentencing on 17 counts of bank fraud and 19 counts of unauthorized use of an access device is scheduled for 11 a.m. Feb. 20, was fined $1,213,970.58, according to an order filed today in U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. He also will have to forfeit his 2006 GMC Yukon XL.
Conner was the ringleader in the scheme, which also resulted in a guilty plea last month from Rep. John Bowman, D-St. Louis, on a misdemeanor bribery charge.
