Another "job well done" by our California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) members who are special agents with the Department of Justice for their work in bringing to justice, investment scam suspect Donald Dunakin.
Dunakin , 42, pleaded guilty to three counts of investor fraud in Sacramento Superior Court last week. He was booked into jail February 4th on 43 counts felony counts that included grand theft, burglary and false statements.
According to a report on sacbee.com, Dunakin scammed more than $1.5 million from at least 28 investors. Victims were led to believe they were investing in securities but their money was instead spent to run Dunakin's nightclub.
This case was investigated by the Department of Justice's Special Crimes Unit in Sacramento.
"Whether they are protecting our lives or protecting our life savings, DOJ special agents define criminal justice," Said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. "This man will go to prison and hopefully will never be able to steal from trusting people again."
