LAS VEGAS (AP) — An ex-construction firm executive and two lawyers are among 11 people indicted in Las Vegas in an ongoing federal probe of southern Nevada homeowner associations steering business to favored attorneys and businesses.

Former Silver Lining Construction Co. chief Leon Benzer and attorneys Barry Levinson and Keith Gregory face conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and other charges in the U.S. District Court indictment handed up Wednesday.

Benzer is the accused leader of the scheme. He's named in all 17 counts.

The indictment comes after 28 other people including property managers, a political consultant, community board members, attorneys and police officers have pleaded guilty since August 2011 and agreed to testify in the case.

Benzer's attorney didn't immediately respond to messages. Efforts to reach Levinson and Gregory were unsuccessful.
