Former hotel owner pays remainder of $1 million penalty

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - The former owner of the Americus Hotel in Allentown has paid off a fine, years after he was busted for taking part in a bogus business deal.

Mark Mendelson has paid the remainder of a $1 million penalty, according to court documents.

Mendelson was ordered to pay the fine after pleading guilty to bribery and conspiracy in 2008.

Mendelson was charged after police said he and another man set up a phony business deal to secure a property in Montgomery County.
