Man Allegedly Violates Probation With Attempted Securities Fraud

Joseph Leonard, of Greenville, North Carolina, was already on probation after pleading guilty to securities fraud earlier this year, but he is now facing new charges for securities fraud in U.S. District Court in Raleigh. Leonard was arrested on September 12, 2012, for the new alleged scheme, which would be considered a violation of his probation in connection with the previous securities fraud charges.

According to the new allegations, Leonard attempted to lure investors into buying stock in Prosano Systems. He allegedly told investors that the company offered a “proton beam” therapy for patients with cancer. Unfortunately, it is believed that Leonard made false statements to his potential investors in an attempt to lure them into investment fraud.

Previously, Leonard had pleaded guilty to securities fraud in relation to a similar scheme. In that scheme, he allegedly lured investors into handing over their cash for investment in a company called Proton Therapy. In that instance, he was accused of creating fake stock certificates and using investors’ cash for his own personal expenses.

Leonard’s scheduled appearance in federal court for the new charges was October 1.
