Former process server gets 3 years for filing false court documents
Former process server Maurice Carroll was sentenced Wednesday to a minimum of 37 months in prison for his conviction in a scheme to file false affidavits in Las Vegas, Henderson and North Las Vegas justice courts.
This came as a prosecutor revealed that police are investigating Carroll on a variety of new allegations, including identity theft, mortgage fraud, insurance fraud and theft from a public utility.
Carroll, 44, who is in custody, admitted to District Judge Elissa Cadish that he has used two identities since he left the Las Vegas police force 13 years ago.
In a rambling plea to avoid prison, Carroll showed no remorse and blamed his legal troubles on Chief Deputy District Attorney Mike Staudaher, who he said blew the criminal case against him out of proportion.
“We ran a legitimate business,” Carroll said. “This was a total mistake.”
But Cadish didn’t buy his words, calling him a “predator” who took advantage of desperate people.
