Former Officer Robert Culp Arrested for a Mortage Lending Scam

A former South Bend police officer who was part of a mortgage lending scam won't learn his fate until March.

Robert Culp, 43, was supposed to be sentenced Tuesday, but the sentencing was rescheduled for March 13th.

Culp was a 17-year veteran of the South Bend Police Department.

Back in May, he pleaded guilty to bank fraud.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Culp and two accomplices bought 190 inexpensive homes and sold them far above their actual value between 2003 and 2007.

Culp faces up to 30 years behind bars.
