Chris Kubiak Arrested and Charged with Felony Theft by Fraud

According to numerous reports, Kubiak allegedly deposited the funds of four clients, three of whom were senior citizens, into his own personal bank account, between June 2015 and August 2018.
Franklin police reportedly arrested Kubiak in September 2018 and in January 2019 a Grand Jury reportedly indicted him for fraud.
According to court documents, “Kubiak fraudulently obtained an excess of $370,000 from elderly clients, which he used for gambling and for personal expenses.”
In some cases, Kubiak purportedly called investment companies and “falsely stated to the associate that he was, in fact, the client calling to request a withdrawal form, or liquidation of, an account.”
He also reportedly “directed the clients to write personal checks payable to him.”
Update on September 24, 2019 – Kubiak Reportedly Sentenced to Prison
According to numerous reports this week, Kubiak was reportedly sentenced U.S. District Court in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to 30 months in prison.
Kubiak was also reportedly ordered to pay $379,977 to the six victims named in the indictment and to serve three years of supervised release after finishing his prison sentence, prosecutors said.
