Austin Morton, a former Edward Jones broker in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, was charged by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for stealing $36,000 from an 83 year-old man with dementia. Morton then filled out a signed blank check from the customer for $22,000 which he called a “loan.” He used this money to pay off his gambling debt due to his extensive online and horse race betting. He allegedly had almost $130,000 in losses from Online Site A, a horse racing wagering facility. FINRA charged Morton with converting funds and engaging in undisclosed outside business activity. He was terminated by Edward Jones in November, 2016.

According to his online BrokerCheck report, Austin Morton was registered with Sallisaw, Oklahoma from October 2011 until December 2016. He has one customer dispute against him that is currently pending. He is currently not registered with any FINRA member firm.
