The former receiver in the Marshall Redman land sales case engaged in misconduct regarding $600,813 in payments to himself and others, and should be ordered to pay the money back, the current receiver has alleged.

Authorities in California and Hawaii say they are investigating the role of a Palmdale woman for possible fraud in sales of raw desert land to 253 low-income investors, some of whom lost their life savings. The investigation centers on Carolina Acio Paredes, who was barred last year from selling real estate in Hawaii and whom California regulators accused earlier this month of continuing to engage in illegal high desert land sales, according to court records.
