UPDATE: Criminal Charges Upgraded Against Reputed ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Marshall Home; Accused Schemer Now Charged With Alleged Theft Bid From Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac

Marshall E. Home, the 81-year-old “sovereign citizen” accused in Arizona two months ago of filing a false petition to place the United States in involuntary bankruptcy and causing at least 173 false claims to be filed against the nation, has more legal problems.

Home and Margaret Elizabeth Broderick of Tucson have been charged in a superseding indictment with bankruptcy fraud, mail fraud and wire fraud.

Through an entity known as “The Individual Right Party; Mortgage Rescue Service,” Home and Broderick hatched a scheme by which they charged $500 and offered purported relief to foreclosure subjects, prosecutors said.

Instead of providing actual relief, they filed “false documents in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, making false claims against the United States. The false claims totaled over $250 billion,” prosecutors said.

But neither Home nor BroderickĀ  stopped there, prosecutors said.

“[T]he indictment alleges that the defendants essentially tried to assume the identities of the Federal National Mortgage Association (better known as ‘Fannie Mae’) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (better known as ‘Freddie Mac,’)” prosecutors said.

“The defendants then filed deeds purporting to transfer title to real estate owned by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to an entity controlled by the defendants. The defendants attempted to steal at least 28 properties from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in this manner,” prosecutors said.
