Gina Marie Marks (born January 25, 1973[7]) is an American psychic and convicted fraudster. Under the pseudonym of Regina Milbourne, she authored Miami Psychic: Confessions of a Confidante, a memoir published by the Regan Books division of HarperCollins in 2006.[8][9][10][11][12]

Criminal charges[edit]

In 2007, Marks pleaded no contest to grand theft charges related to an agreement to cleanse souls for a total of $65,000.[13] She was then put on probation for eighteen months and ordered to return the money back to her clients. In 2009, she was arrested again for a similar event.[14]

In 2010, she was then arrested again in Florida for a defrauding of over $300,000 and for violating probation.[15] A month later, while still in Broward County Jail, she was arraigned again on further fraud charges involving another person who came forward due to media exposure from her March arrest.[16]

On September 1, 2010, Marks pleaded guilty to grand theft and two counts of organized fraud. In addition she admitted to violating her probation. At her sentencing, Marks handed over a $400,000 check to partially repay her former clients.[17] Marks was paroled in June 2011 from Gadsden Correctional Facility. She served nine of her eighteen-month sentence and is currently[when?] on probation for eight years.[citation needed]

On April 2, 2014, in a different case, Marks was sentenced to 10 years of probation.[18][19][20]

Personal life[edit]

Marks has a daughter, Hillarie Miller.[21][22]
