Pump and dump scheme in violation of sec regulations = no jail time

Mar 6, 2019

 Over a several-year period, Casey fought for a client accused of being involved in a “pump and dump” scheme in violation of SEC regulations and federal laws. The client was charged with several felonies as well as sued civilly by the SEC. The client entered a guilty plea and the government sought a two-year prison sentence. The court rejected the government’s request in favor of Casey’s argument that his client receive no jail or prison time. Additionally Casey settled the SEC civil case in a manner that was pleasing to his client.
