Attorney enters plea in federal court

May 16, 2013

An Oconee attorney whose license has been suspended by the state’s Chief Justice entered a plea of guilt yesterday in federal court at Anderson to making false statements as part of a real estate investment scheme. Easley resident Scott Allmon’s license to practice law was suspended by order of Chief Justice Toal in January. According to the U-S Attorney’s Office, Allmon served as the closing attorney for loans to developers in a failed real estate development called Riviera Estates. The government’s statement reads: “Allmon knowingly made false state statements about deposits that were allegedly put down on the property.” Judge Tim Cain accepted Allmon’s plea and will consider a U-S Probation Office report before passing sentence. U-S Attorney Bill Nettles said the maximum penalty the defendant can receive is five years in prison, a $250 thousand fine, and a special assessment fee of $100 dollars.
