San Diego man guilty in fake court order

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A man who tried to stall the foreclosure of his San Diego County home by making up a court order and signing the name of a fictional judge has pleaded guilty to federal charges.

The San Diego Union-Tribune says 45-year-old Marc Uribe entered the plea Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Uribe created a phony order temporarily barring lenders from foreclosing on his Mission Valley home and signed it with the name of a non-existent federal judge named Ivan Gonzalez. Authorities learned about the order when a lender contacted them.

When he's sentenced later this year, Uribe faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
