According to a recent FINRA Disciplinary Actions announcement, Jose Martin Canales (CRD #1945614, El Paso, Texas) submitted an AWC in which he was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.
Without admitting or denying the findings, Canales consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he failed to provide documents and information, and to appear for testimony in response to FINRA requests. The findings stated that FINRA was investigating events leading up to Canales’ termination from his member firm, including, among other things, his handling of customer funds. Canales, through his attorney, advised FINRA that he would not appear for testimony or provide documents and information in response to FINRA’s requests.
For FINRA’s full findings, see FINRA Case #2014041231501.
