Karen P. Bowie: Sentenced, 80 Years

Feb 1

Karen P. Bowie was sentenced Feb. 1 to 80 years in state prison for her part in a $5 million fraud operated by Titan Wealth Management LLC of Plano.

Titan sold fictitious high-yielding foreign notes that were supposedly issued by European banks and claimed the notes would pay short-term returns of between 10% and 50%.

Bowie bought a house in Maine with some of the proceeds from the fraud. She was sentenced after a week-long trial on theft charges.
