An Illinois judge who came to the country as an immigrant has been indicted for allegedly lying on loan applications to obtain $1.4 million in mortgages.

Judge Jessica A. O’Brien immigrated to the United States after high school. She subsequently graduated from John Marshall Law School.

Before being elected to the Cook County, Illinois, bench in 2012, she owned a real estate company and worked part-time as a loan officer.
