Her prison sentence will begin Sept. 9, documents state.
Wagner was a partner at the law firm of Wagner & Hyman in Williamsburg. Prosecutors believe she used the law firm as a front to conduct a timeshare transfer scheme from 2011 to 2013. According to a government press release (read the full release by clicking HERE), Ms. Wagner participated in a timeshare scheme with Keith Kosco, Julie Duffield, Brendan Hawkins and others. Keith Kosco owned and operated a number of entities involved in travel, tourism and timeshare businesses including Resort Realty, Inc., Resort Solutions, Inc., and Exotic Equity Transfers, LLC (EET). Brendan Hawkins owned and operated another timeshare transfer business known as GoodBye Timeshares (GoodBye). Both businesses offered timeshare transfers in exchange for upfront fees. Desperate timeshare owners who were otherwise unable to escape the financial obligation of the timeshare ownership would pay for a service to have the unwanted timeshare deeded out of their name. It was represented to the seller of the timeshare that clean title would pass to the new owner with no further obligations of timeshare ownership (including maintenance fees) once the transfer was complete.
