Samuel Ryan Jacobson (born July 22, 1975) is an American former professional basketball player. He played professionally for the National Basketball Association's Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, and Minnesota Timberwolves.
Jacobson, along with his wife Traci Jacobson, were charged in Dakota County Court with theft by false representation and theft by swindle in connection with the August 2011 short-sale of his Apple Valley, MN home. The charges state that Jacobson conspired with his then girlfriend Traci Quam to convince his lender, JPMorgan Chase, to "short sale" because Jacobson was in the process of declaring bankruptcy. Quam, who was his live-in girlfriend at the time, then purchased the home. Jacobson and his children still continued to live in the home even though the sale agreement with the lender required contained an "arm's length" condition that required the buyer and seller to be "unrelated parties ... acting in his or her own self-interest." Later in 2011 Quam sold the home for a $226,793.06 profit.
On November 14, 2017, Jacobson plead guilty to residential mortgage fraud over $35,000 in a Dakota County court. Jacobson's wife, Traci, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting residential mortgage fraud. Count two against Sam Jacobson — theft by swindle over $35,000 — was amended to residential mortgage fraud, Ryan Garry said, and count one — theft by false representation over $35,000 — will be dismissed. Both Jacobsons will be sentenced January 27, 2018.
