Defendants Sentenced in Adoption Scam

Defendants Sentenced in Adoption Scam

Salt Lake City, Utah - The Focus on the Children corporation, along with four defendants who worked for the organization, were sentenced in federal court here today for their role in facilitating the fraudulent adoption of children from Samoa.

Scott Banks, 47; Karen Banks, 48; Coleen Bartlett, 52; and Karalee Thornock, 36, received 60 months probation as part of a plea agreement in which they admitted aiding and abetting the improper entry of an alien. The corporation, Focus on Children (FOC), pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit alien smuggling and visa fraud. U.S. District Judge David Sam ordered FOC to dissolve once pending litigation involving the corporation is resolved.
