Rogers Attorney Charged In Case Against Developer

A federal grand jury has indicted a Rogers attorney in connection with a federal fraud case against a former Fayetteville developer.

US Attorney Conner Eldridge said Thursday that a federal grand jury indicted 38-year-old David Fisher of Rogers for conspiracy to commit bank fraud in a case involving former developer Brandon Barber and two others.

Prosecutors say Fisher and the others made false statements to a bank in order to obtain loans worth more than the property put up as collateral for the loans.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Fisher.

Barber faces 27 counts of bank fraud, bankruptcy fraud, money laundering and conspiracy in the case.

His trial is scheduled for June 17 in federal court in Fort Smith. He has pleaded not guilty.
