Minnesota Man Convicted of Student Loan Fraud
Timothy M. Morrison, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, announced the sentencing today in U.S. District Court of HOUMAN J. MOVA, 27, St. Paul, Minnesota, following his plea of guilty to student loan fraud.  Chief Judge Sarah Evans Barker sentenced Mova to 6 months home confinement and 2 years probation.  The investigation resulting in this conviction was conducted by special agents of the U.S. Department of Education.
At the hearing today MOVA admitted to defrauding the U. S. Department of Education and USA Group in Fishers by fraudulently obtaining student loans in 1995 and 1996.  The loans were processed by USA in Fishers but contained forged signatures and certifications of school officials of the foreign school to which he applied.  According to Assistant United States Attorney James M. Warden, who prosecuted the case for the government, MOVA kept the $35,000 in loan funds but never attended the medical school to which he applied.  Chief Judge Barker also ordered MOVA to make full restitution to USA Group.
