The ringleader of a property fraud title scheme, Arizona inmate Jason Bullard, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. His co-conspirator Rockney Martineau was sentenced to 18 years in prison for his role in the fraud scheme.
Bullard has been incarcerated in Arizona for more than 25 years. That hasn’t stopped the duo from attempting to take over deeds to properties they don’t own over the years. The defendants falsely claim to be the homeowners and attempt to take loans out against the property. The true owner is then left with a costly legal battle to reclaim the title to their own home. Bullard and Martineau claim they have the right to do this as “sovereign citizens.”
