Caroline Meyers pleads guilty to role in Coastal Pacific pump-and-dump scheme

Dec 08 2015

Caroline Meyers (a.k.a. Caroline Winsor, a.k.a. Caroline Danforth) has pled guilty to acting as a dealer of securities without registration, not filing a prospectus, and engaging in a course of conduct that resulted in a false appearance of trading activity and an artificial price for Coastal Pacific Mining Corp. securities. Sentencing is scheduled for January 7, 2016, to permit time for Meyers to address charges in the U.S.

In September 2015, Meyers’ co-accused Joseph Bucci pled guilty to the same charges and received an 18-month conditional sentence as well as permanent market prohibitions.

The charges are in connection with the 2010 market manipulation of the securities of Calgary-based Coastal Pacific.
