November 7, 2014- Sante Fe businessman Charles R. Kokesh was found guilty by a jury in New Mexico of misspending $35 million in investor funds in a suit brought by the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC).

Andrew Ceresney, Director, SEC Division of Enforcement issued the following statement: “We are pleased that the jury found Kokesh liable for defrauding his firm’s advisory clients and making false public filings with the SEC.  Kokesh owed his clients the highest duty of trust and confidence, but he betrayed that duty by systematically looting approximately $35 million in client funds over many years.  Today’s result reaffirms our commitment to hold unscrupulous industry professionals accountable for their wrongdoing.”

From 1995-2007 Kokesh operated four SEC registered business development companies:

  • Technology Funding Medical Partners I

    Technology Funding Partners III

    Technology Funding Partners IV

    Technology Funding Partners V
