                           Ohio Division of Securities
                             Enforcement Update


Joseph D. Bonanno
On 4/19/10 in U.S. District Court in Cleveland, Joseph D. Bonanno was sentenced to 3
½ years on federal charges of wire fraud, making false statements, making false
statements in connection with the issuance of a passport, and aggravated identity theft.
He will be on probation for three years after his release. He was also ordered to pay a
$500.00 criminal monetary penalty. The Division had revoked Bonanno’s Ohio
investment adviser representative license on 5/12/09, after learning that he had two
outstanding warrants against him from the State of Massachusetts. In 1989, Bonanno
fled the Boston, MA area to escape two outstanding warrants against him for larceny.
Bonanno landed in Northeast Ohio and assumed the identity of Timothy W. Hyde, an
infant from Youngstown, Ohio that died a few days after his birth. Authorities
discovered his real identity following an arrest in early 2009 in Jackson Township when
he was accused of striking his wife. The Jackson Township police forwarded the
information to the FBI, which discovered his true identity during their investigation.

He was also charged in a superseding indictment in U.S. District Court in Akron on
6/16/09. Those counts included 2 counts of fraud with identification documents and 1
count of false statements of a passport.



Ferrell Carden
On 2/9/10, Ferrell Carden pleaded guilty in the Harrison County Court of Common Pleas
to the charge of securing writings by deception, a second degree felony. His indictment
came after an April 2008 Cease and Desist Order was issued by the Division, where he
was ordered to stop dealing in securities. The Order found that Carden sold
unregistered securities, sold securities without a license, made misrepresentations in
connection with the sale of securities, and engaged in fraudulent practices. The Order
specified that he had knowingly misrepresented to a married couple that funds they
provided would be used exclusively for investments in a water treatment plant or in a
beach restoration project, when they were in fact used for other purposes. The amount
invested was $350,000.00. On 4/27/10 he was sentenced to community control for a
period of five years. Additionally, he is required to complete a term of six months of
house arrest and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $225,000 to his four
victims.


Larry Corna
On 10/22/09, Larry Corna was sentenced to prison for 4 years and 11 months after
admitting to a felony racketeering charge. Corna had been indicted in Franklin County
on charges of theft, forgery, making false representations in the sale of securities,
securities fraud, and securing writings by deception on 9/1/06. He was in the business
of “flipping” real estate by rehabbing properties and allegedly bilked five persons into
investing money in his scheme. On 9/30/09, he pleaded guilty to 5 felony counts,
including counts of forgery, theft, engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, and money
laundering.


David J. Harriett

On 6/9/10, the Ohio Division of Securities issued a Cease and Desist Order against
David J. Harriett of Warren, Ohio, president of D.J. Harriett, Inc., and against D.J.
Harriett, Inc., a Canfield, Ohio company. By terms of the Cease and Desist Order, the
Division ordered Harriett and his company to cease from selling fraudulent securities.

In 2008 and 2009, Harriett represented to investors that he and his company, D.J.
Harriett, Inc., were approved “project managers” for the construction of new McDonald’s
franchise restaurants in Northeast Ohio. Harriett solicited investors for D.J. Harriett, Inc.
and, in exchange for their investment, provided them with promissory notes that
purportedly guaranteed the return of their investment, plus significant interest, which
would be safeguarded by insurance.

Additionally, on June 9, 2010, David J. Harriett pleaded guilty in the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, to mail fraud. It is estimated that 200
investors lost a combined $7 million in the Ponzi scheme. He is to be sentenced on
9/28/10.


Julie Mae Jarvis
On 10/14/09, Julie Mae Jarvis was sentenced to 5½ years in prison. A civil suit was
filed against Ms. Jarvis by an investor in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas on
4/3/09. On 4/8/09 the SEC also filed a civil lawsuit against her. Ms. Jarvis was alleged
to have defrauded the elderly and misrepresented and concealed the nature of her
misappropriations. She signed a plea agreement to a Bill of Information on 4/23/09,
charging her with one count of mail fraud and agreed to forfeit $2,663,681.00 in assets.
She also pleaded guilty on 5/13/09 to 1 count of fraud involving the theft of
approximately $2.7 million from two elderly clients. On April 10, 2009, the Division
suspended Ms. Jarvis’s investment adviser representative license. The Division
revoked the license on May 28, 2009.


James Powell
On 6/28/10, James Powell pleaded guilty to 1 count of attempt and conspiracy to
commit mail fraud and fraud by wire, radio or television. He was released after
processing and surrendering his passport. He is scheduled to be sentenced on 9/28/10.




                                             2
The Powell case has been ongoing since 2008 when the Butler County Common Pleas
Court issued a temporary restraining order against James D. Powell; the estate of David
L. Colwell; Midwest Marketing; Capital Investments; Great Miami Real Estate, LLC; and
Great Miami Debenture LLC, all of Hamilton, Ohio. An agreed preliminary injunction
was issued against Hubert Jackson Rials of Cunningham, Kentucky; Stephen
Chatsworth Jacobs of Hamilton, Ohio; and Kevin Miller of Fairfield, Ohio. The Division
alleged that Colwell, Rials, Jacobs, and Miller sold investments for the companies
owned and operated by Powell. The Division also sought a preliminary and permanent
injunction and the appointment of a receiver to manage and operate Capital
Investments, the Great Miami companies, and Midwest Marketing and their
subsidiaries. The Division alleged that since 2002 the defendants sold $11 million in
securities to approximately 100 investors in Ohio and other states. Investors were told
that their investments would be used to acquire and develop real estate. In its action,
the Division alleged that the defendants sold unregistered securities; sold securities
without a license; misrepresented to investors that the investments were safe, risk-free,
and backed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or otherwise insured;
and failed to disclose to investors that they were not licensed, the securities were
unregistered, and that Colwell and Miller had previously been issued cease and desist
orders by the Division of Securities. A preliminary injunction was issued on February 4,
2009, against James D. Powell, Capital Investments, Great Miami Real Estate, LLC,
and Great Miami Debenture. The restraining order and preliminary injunction bar the
defendants from selling, offering to sell, or transferring any securities; buying, selling or
transferring any real estate without the court’s prior approval; and engaging in any
deceptive, fraudulent or manipulative act. It further barred the subjects of the
restraining order from destroying or altering records as well as divesting of any assets
derived from the sale of securities. In addition, the court appointed a receiver to
manage and operate the companies.

On 1/20/10, Kevin Miller, one of the unlicensed securities salespersons with Capital
Investments pled to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud in his role in an
investment scheme and one count of obstruction of an investigation for submitting false
victim questionnaires to the Ohio Division of Securities.

On August 26, 2010, Kevin Miller, was sentenced in the United States District Court for
the Southern District of Ohio, to 15 months imprisonment. In addition to the prison time,
Miller’s sentence includes two years of supervised release, and an order to pay
restitution of $184,354.36 to the three victims directly affected by his actions. Miller is
also prohibited from engaging in any further investment solicitation activity.


Joanne Schneider
On 5/13/10, the Court of Appeals for the Eighth Appellate District unanimously reversed
and vacated the three-year prison sentence Joanne Schneider received for her role in a
$60 million securities fraud scheme. Schneider ran a large Ponzi scheme in the
Cleveland area, selling promissory notes ostensibly guaranteed by the profits of her real
estate development business. Schneider was sentenced in March of 2009 after



                                             3
pleading guilty to thirteen securities-related charges, which included one count of
engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. The Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office
appealed the March 2009 sentence, citing a statute that mandates a ten-year sentence
where the underlying act in a pattern of corrupt activity is a felony of the first degree.
The Court of Appeals agreed that the three-year sentence was impermissibly short and
remanded the matter back to the trial court. On 8/31/10, the Cuyahoga County Court of
Common Pleas sentenced Joanne Schneider to ten years in prison for engaging in a
pattern of corrupt activity.

Schneider’s indictment and subsequent conviction represented the culmination of a
four-year effort by the Ohio Division of Securities and the Cuyahoga County
Prosecutor’s Office against Joanne Schneider. The Division issued a Cease and Desist
Order against Schneider in May 2004 based on her sale of unregistered promissory
notes. The Division later obtained a preliminary injunction against Schneider in
December 2004, after she violated that Cease and Desist Order. In February 2005, the
Division discovered that Joanne Schneider violated the injunction by continuing to sell
securities without the permission of the court and the court-appointed Special Master.
The Division then sought the appointment of a receiver, who took possession of
Schneider’s assets, and referred the matter to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s office
for criminal prosecution.


Phil Smith
On 11/18/09, Phil Smith was sentenced to 6 months in Darke County jail and ordered to
pay $15,000 in restitution to his victims, based on his ability to repay. Previously, on
9/17/09 Smith pleaded guilty to 18 counts, including securities fraud, selling
unregistered securities, misrepresentations in the sale of securities, and unlicensed
sales. He was found to have sold investment contracts of Wellspring Capital Group
promising 1000% return to approximately 118 Ohio investors. The SEC obtained a
preliminary injunction against Wellspring in September 2003 and the founder of the
company, Blake Prater, was sentenced in March 2007. Prater is serving ten years in
prison on one count of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to engage in certain
monetary transactions involving proceeds of securities fraud.


James Stamp
On 9/20/09 in Summit County, James A. Stamp was sentenced to 3 years of
incarceration, suspended on the condition that he complete 3 years of community
service, and make full and complete restitution to three Ohio victims. Previously, Stamp
pleaded guilty to 10 felony counts, in connection with sales of “membership certificates”
in Stamp’s company, Shema Capital Partners LLC, to three Ohio customers. The
charges included selling unregistered securities, securities fraud, false representations,
deception to secure documents, and one count of grand theft.




                                            4
Bret Allen Swisher
On 1/11/10, Bret Allen Swisher was sentenced to 5 years in prison by Richland County
Common Pleas Court. He was also fined $50,000 and ordered to pay restitution of
$4,463 to one client. Following his release from prison, Swisher will be subject to 5
years of community control.

Swisher had been indicted on 128 counts on 7/20/09 and on 10/5/09, he pleaded guilty
to 39 felony charges. The counts included making false reports in securities
transactions, forgery, securities fraud, aggravated theft, false representation in the sale
of securities, telecommunications fraud, receiving stolen property, unauthorized use of
property and securing writings by deception.

Swisher was formerly licensed with Legg Mason and McDonald Investments. He
completed “letter of authorization” forms and forged clients’ signatures to obtain funds
from brokerage accounts without the clients’ permission; transferred client funds into
accounts he controlled; and converted client funds to his own personal use without their
knowledge or authorization. He also stole money from some clients and used the funds
to pay back other clients.


William E. Thurman, II
On 10/20/10, William E. Thurman II was indicted in the Butler County Court of Common
Pleas on a charge of selling an unregistered security, a third degree felony. His
indictment came after an investigation determined that in January of 2005, Thurman
sold an investment security in a company known as New Process Technology, RLLP to
an Ohio investor. The security was not registered to be sold under the Ohio Securities
Act. The Division had previously issued a Cease and Desist Order against Thurman in
a separate matter involving Tee to Green Golf Parks, Inc. in August of 2000.

On 6/22/10, the case against Thurman was dismissed when Thurman made restitution
to the victim through the Butler County Prosecutor’s office. The amount of the
restitution was $19,260.


Melvin R. Wilder
On 7/14/10, following a criminal referral by the Ohio Division of Securities, a Franklin
County grand jury indicted Melvin Wilder on 12 counts of securities law violations. The
12 felony counts include three counts of selling unregistered securities, three counts of
securities fraud, and six counts of making false reports of transactions in securities.
Wilder is charged with crimes relating to the sale of $30,000 in securities to a former
Ohio resident currently living in Michigan. A trial date has not yet been scheduled.

Wilder is the owner of Wilder & Associates, a tax preparation business in Worthington,
Ohio. He has never been licensed by the Division of Securities.
