Bridgeport attorney sentenced in foreclosure scheme – Connecticut …

A former Bridgeport attorney will serve a 30-month prison sentence, after his conviction on charges of helping an Easton man scam area homeowners.

Odenton, Md. resident Bradford Barneys, 51, handled legal work at his Bridgeport office on behalf of Timothy W. Burke, at the time an Easton resident who preyed on homeowners facing foreclosure. According to the office of U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly, Burke promised to buy those homes and pay off the mortgages and taxes, but did not make the promised payments while renting out the homes to other tenants.


Barneys received more than $70,000 for his work in the fraud, with Daly’s office stating he pursued his own scheme in helping two Maryland residents purchase a property on Boston Avenue in Bridgeport, then collecting rent from tenants without the owners’ knowledge.

In April, Burke was sentenced to nine years in prison.
