A woman who formerly lived in Elk Grove was indicted when a federal grand jury returned an 18-county charge last week. On Friday, June 29, Arlina Alexander-Zaplutus, 50, was indicted for making false statements and falsifying documents in a bankruptcy filing. 

According to court documents, Alexander-Zaplutus filed the bankruptcy at U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California in Sacramento that contained materially false information, including purported debtors’ names, addresses, and Social Security numbers. Alexander-Zaplutus is alleged to have filed and caused the filing of the falsified petitions to invoke the automatic stay provisions of federal bankruptcy law with respect to her and her clients’ residential properties, which halted creditors’ collection and foreclosure actions. 

Along with those charges, the indictment also alleges she falsified bankruptcy petitions with the intent to obstruct the investigation and proper administration of bankruptcy cases. Alexander-Zaplutus’ whereabouts are unknown and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

In April 2014, Arlina Alexander-Zaplutus was alleged to have conducted a foreclosures rescue scheme that included 33 bankruptcy filing over a seven year period ending in 2013.  

If convicted, Alexander-Zaplutus faces a maximum statutory penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each false statement count and 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count of falsifying documents in bankruptcy.
