Jailed New York Mortgage Fraudster Sentenced For Murder Plot

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Aaron Hand was doing time on his conviction in a $100 million mortgage fraud, when he hatched a jailhouse plot to murder a witness whose testimony got him locked up.

Now, as a result of his guilty plea in that murder conspiracy, he’s been sentenced to 8 to 16 years in prison to be added on to the 8 1/3 to 25 years he got in the mortgage fraud case.

Fortunately for Aaron Hand’s intended victim, the hitman he hired was an undercover investigator who wore a wire and taped Hand as he told him just how to get the gun and how to go about killing the witness.

Hand told his supposed hitman that if the target’s wife and children were home, they’d have to be killed, too.

    He must be the only person doing time for mortgage fraud because the rest are still employed and getting big salries trying to “help” undo their wrong doing.

    what a lowlife, and now an even lower form of lowlife. why must we be saddled with his room & board and “amenities” for the next 16-40+ years. the only question should be which method to use to dispatch him the the afterlife? there’s the tried and true tools of the spanish inquisition, keel-hauling (a favorite of the british navy – think mutiny on the bounty). the vikings had a few good ones, as did the native american peoples (think iroquois, apache, comanche). he’ll probably want to appeal the outrage of his amended sentencing, so we have time to narrow punishment down.
