In late 1999, Torina left a mortgage broker in Maryland. In 2000, Torina became a personal banker at Bank of America. Torina quickly rose to a senior personal banker and took her job seriously. When she noticed customers accounts being changed without their knowledge and they were incurring enormous monthly fees, she spoke up. Enduring repeated harassments, she did not waiver in her attempt to have the activities cease.
In October 2003, Torina was wrongfully indicted for conspiracy to commit mortgage fraud along with 8 other defendants, most of which Torina did not know. This was regarding the mortgage broker she worked at prior to Bank of America. Torina was facing 20 years in prison and had to quickly learn law as her life depended on it. Her court appointed attorney told her the government was cutting his funds if she didn't plead guilty. Torina stood her grounds and was fighting for justice and refused to plead guilty for something she didn't do. She took control of her case and proved prior to the trial date that the FBI agent and prosecutor made up a false confession to the Grandy Jury.
The government dismissed the case on Torina November 2004. Torina filed a lawsuit against the United States and the FBI and the case was dismissed as the government argued that the government is "absolutely immune" for lying about a defendant and causing an indictment. Torina argues that the case Imbler vs. Pachtman has been misinterpreted and that the government cannot be immune. There are alot of innocent people behind bars because their attorney sold them out and had them plea guilty even though they were innocent or they were, as in Torina's case, indicted based on fraud by government officials.
Torina's reports to corporate and regional management regarding the Bank of America fraud continued and her regional manager ultimately terminated her over the phone February 25, 2005 after Torina was given two write ups on the eve of February 24, 2005, one being back dated. Torina had numerous attorneys on her cases and they withdraw after unsuccessful attempts to get Torina to settle. Torina has been representing herself on and off and had to quickly learn law, although she had never been to college. Torina has spent over 50k in legal fees seeking justice and hell bent on holding those responsible accountable.
While unrepresented at a four day trial in October 2009, Torina was able to get shocking evidence on the record and expose how the bank and their law firm gave false information to U.S. Federal Investigators and a host of other misrepresentations. Bank of America and their law firm quickly turned to try and silence Torina. Torina is not easily intimidated and took the evidence from trial and filed a new lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Prince Georges County in Maryland for conspiracy against Bank of America, their law firm McGuire Woods, the lead counsel , and three key employees involved in Torina’s termination.
On February 8, 2013, the Prince Georges County Maryland Judge dismissed the case and warned Plaintiff her time for fighting was over and if she attempted to file another lawsuit against Bank of America she will be sanctioned.
