IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -

 A mansion built by an eastern Idaho man convicted on federal wire fraud and money laundering charges has been sold for a fraction of its value.
    
The Post Register reports (http://bit.ly/1e7VbhX) that the home built with $6.9 million of defrauded investors' money sold late last month for $762,000.
    
Darin Palmer was convicted in 2011 for what prosecutors said was the largest Ponzi scheme in state history. Court records showed that Palmer's Trigon Group received about $75.8 million from 68 investors between 2002 and 2008, and lost more than $20 million of that money.
    
He was sentenced to eight years in federal prison.
    
The asking price for the 16,000-square-foot, six-bedroom home was $4 million. It has an indoor basketball court and a pool house.
