In October of last year, Artzberger pled guilty before the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas to two counts of theft by deception and one count of misapplication of entrusted property.
The criminal complaint accused Artzberger of deceiving two of her customers into giving her $134,679. Not only did the complaint allege that Artzberger had acted deceptively, but also that she managed her customers’ funds in a way that was knowingly unlawful and risky. Artzberger admitted to taking cashier checks from her customers and, instead of depositing them as promised, used the money for herself.The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has barred Artzberger from the securities industry.
