Calvin Wynn is certainly one of the more memorable characters we've met over the years. If the allegations against him are true, he forged a dead man's signature to assume control of his home.
But unlike the real estate scammers we've seen with multiple victims, it appears Wynn got caught his first time out. That's probably why prosecutors cut him a deal they now say he didn't live up to.
Via the video record from the lower level Arraignment Court, Calvin Wynn sticks to the part of his story that hasn't changed since his arrest in 2007.
Wynn proclaims he is innocent of six felony charges relating to a real estate transaction in 2006. According to records, Morris Rozet, the 30-year resident of a southeast Las Vegas home, quit claimed his property to Wynn. Trouble is, Rozet's signature is dated a full nine months after his death.
The I-Team confronted Wynn as he worked to flip the property that, at least on paper, he didn't appear to own. "If there's something strange about the paperwork, you're telling me I'm going to be out $200,000. That's what you're telling me?" he said.
Wynn explains he paid Rozet $100,000 for the house, negotiated the deal by phone, paid by wire transfer to people he can't identify. Wynn explains he is the victim and laments several hundred thousand dollars lost on the house and its renovations.
With his attorney present days later, the would-be real estate mogul admits no money changed hands, at least not with Rozet. Yet police believe Wynn cashed in with a fraudulent six figure home equity loan against Rozet's house. "I'm just being honest with you. I'm telling you the truth," said Wynn.
Prosecutors don't think so, but as a first time offender they cut a deal with him -- pay back the fraudulent loan and in exchange, six felony charges for burglary, theft, and forgery, among others, would reduce to a single count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Yet just last month in lower level arraignment court, Wynn faced the consequences for another deal gone bad. According to court records he has yet to pay the price, not a single penny, for his actions.
Because Wynn has not paid any restitution, all bets are off. He is scheduled for trial on all six felonies in October. Efforts to reach him for comment were unsuccessful.
