Convicted scam artist back behind bars

Members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force tracked down 48-year-old Cornelius Robinson on Tuesday, putting an end to his flight from justice. Robinson had been convicted on several charges in connection with a long-running mortgage fraud operation, but failed to show up for his sentencing hearing last Friday in federal court.

Prosecutors say Robinson was the ringleader of a scam that involved 15 other people and cost banks more than $4.5 million. He faces the possibility of more than 20 years in prison.
