The government alleges that Hardwick stole almost $21 million from MHS’s client escrow accounts from 2011 through the end of July 2014 and spent almost $16 million on charter jets, casinos, bookies and women alone. Hardwick was the majority owner of the residential real estate closing and foreclosure firm—once one of the largest in the nation, with about 800 employees in 13 states.
