Schrenker remains under investigation by Rokita's Indiana Securities Division; Criminal and civil action underway in Indiana

(Indianapolis) – Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita issued the following statement today at the conclusion of a federal plea hearing in which Marcus Schrenker entered a guilty plea on charges relating to abandoning a plane over Alabama in January:

"Today's plea means we're one step closer to seeing Marcus Schrenker back in Indiana so we may continue to seek justice on behalf of investors here," said Secretary Rokita. "I applaud local and federal authorities in Florida and Alabama for preparing a strong case in order to bring the matters in the federal jurisdiction to a conclusion."

Upon a return to Indiana, Schrenker currently faces two felony counts of securities fraud in Hamilton County, resulting from an ongoing investigation by Secretary Rokita's Indiana Securities Division. He also is the subject of civil action brought by the Securities Division to recover investor funds.
