Rebecca Tharpe, Brentwood, was sentenced in Queens Criminal Court on Wednesday after being convicted of falsifying business records

She is to serve 30 days in jail and then five years probation, and was fined $2,500. Justice Kenneth Holder also ordered that the woman speak at mortgage fraud forums while on probation

She will discuss the pitfalls of being a "straw buyer." In Tharpe's case, prosecutors say she posed as the phony applicant for a mortgage on a property that had been stolen from a 93-year-old retiree

A co-conspirator was convicted of grand larceny in the case. Get the Biz Briefing newsletter! The latest LI business news in your inbox Monday through Friday
