Ex-Stanford Execs. Liable For Fraud, Ordered To Pay $5.5M

Aug 6 2013 | 10:14am ET

Three former executives of Ponzi schemer R. Allen Stanford's brokerage have been ordered to pay nearly $5.5 million for their role in the fraud.

A Securities and Exchange Commission administrative law judge found Bernerd Young, Daniel Bogar and Jason Green liable for the $7 billion scam, even though the agency did not allege that any of them knew about the fraud. Still, their conduct was so "egregious" that Judge Carol Fox Foelak found against them anyway, agreeing with the SEC that the three didn't do enough to ensure that Stanford's marketing materials and disclosures were adequate.

Young was Stanford Group's chief compliance officer, Bogar its president and Green head of its private-client group. Each was ordered to pay a $260,000 fine; Green was ordered to disgorge $2.6 million, Bogar $1.5 million and Young nearly $600,000.

All three denied wrongdoing and can appeal the decision.

The ruling comes a year after Stanford himself was sentenced to 110 years in prison, and months after three other former Stanford executives received prison terms ranging from five to 20 years.
