SEC Alleges that Detroit Adviser Stole Money from Police & Firefighters' Pension Fund

The SEC and Chauncey C. Mayfield, the founder, president, and CEO of MayfieldGentry Realty Advisors, a Detroit-based investment adviser, agreed to settle charges that Mayfield stole nearly $3.1 million from the pension fund that the firm manages for the city's police officers and firefighters so he could buy two strip malls in California. The SEC charged four other top officials at the firm for helping him try to cover up the theft.  Mayfield and his firm agreed to settle the charges by paying back the stolen amount.  They neither admit nor deny the allegations in the settlement, which is subject to court approval. In a parallel criminal matter, Mayfield is awaiting sentencing in connection with his guilty plea for participation in the pay-to-play scheme.
