Brothers sentenced to prison in bank scam

A pair of Modesto brothers received prison sentences on Monday of more than four years each for their roles in a bank-fraud scam in Merced and Stanislaus counties. Abdel Baset Jawad, 38, was sentenced to four years, nine months in prison. His brother, Abdul Muniem Mohamad Jawad, 39, received a term of four years, three months. They were also ordered to pay about $601,000 in restitution, the U.S. Justice Department said in a statement. Both men were convicted in January by a federal jury following a three-day trial.
