Release Date: Apr 24, 2019

OLATHE – (April 24, 2019) – An Overland Park man last week pleaded no contest to two felony counts of securities fraud, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

William DePlato, 69, Overland Park, pleaded no contest to the charges, which stemmed from incidents involving two victims that occurred in Johnson County between 2010 and 2016. The loss to the investors totaled $24,000. Johnson County District Court Judge Timothy McCarthy accepted the plea and ordered DePlato to pay a total of $24,000 in restitution.

Sentencing has been scheduled for June 27 at 9 a.m.

The case was investigated by the Office of the Kansas Securities Commissioner. Assistant Attorney General Stacy Edwards of Schmidt’s office is prosecuting the case.
