Real estate developer who pleaded guilty to $40-million mortgage fraud now wants to withdraw his plea

In Vancouver, British Columbia, a former real estate developer had plead guilty to mortgage fraud that totaled $40M. The accused, Tarsem Singh Gill, was scheduled to be sentenced on November 8, but he has filed to retract his plea of guilty after hiring the fifth lawyer that he has had since the trials began. He fired his first two lawyers, the third withdrew, and then he fired the fourth when he hired Kevin McCollough.

Martin Wirick, also accused along with Gill, plead guilty in 2009. He is a former lawyer that was disbarred and, now on parole, was meant to be a key witness against Gill. Wirick funneled money that was meant to pay off mortgages and liens into Gill's multiple companies.
