Two men convicted in a failed $44 million land fraud in Dade County have been sentenced in federal court.

Josh Dobson, 36, will serve 10 years while co-defendant Paul Gott, 40, will serve six.

The men were convicted last year at trial for bilking 11 banks and likely hundreds of investors in a down payment plan scheme involving land at The Preserve in Rising Fawn, Ga.
