Alcides Roman, age 53, of Ocoee, Florida, was sentenced Monday to 41 months in prison
and 3 years supervised release for defrauding $340,000 from individuals in Louisiana
seeking business loans.
The sentence was handed down by United States District Judge Tom Stagg. Roman was also ordered to pay $340,000 to his victims.
In November 2007, Alcides Roman, doing business as Amstar Investment Properties, procured wire transfers of money from two different advanced fee contracts. The first transfer involved a wire transfer of $200,000 by an individual looking for financing on several properties in Alabama and Florida.

Bureau of Prisons on February 25, 2013.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Shreveport
