Securities fraud is defined as making false statements regarding the value of a particular company or a company’s stocks in order to convince people to make important financial decisions based on that information. Securities are both governed by both Pennsylvania and federal laws, making those under investigation susceptible to both types of charges.

Securities Fraud Penalties
Securities fraud can happen in a number of ways, such as insider trading, misrepresentation, or churning. It’s important to understand that a person can commit securities fraud even if he/she never actually profited from the fraudulent activity.
If an individual is suspected of committing securities fraud in Pennsylvania, it is considered a second degree felony, which is punishable by a maximum prison term of 10 years and/or fines of up to $1 million. However, there are certain circumstances when an individual can be charged with a first degree felony, which is punishable by maximum prison term of up to 20 years and/or fines of up to $5 million. Guilty offenders may also be sentenced to make restitution in addition to their punishment.
