AriseBank CEO Pleads Guilty to $4.2 Million Securities Fraud

Jared Rice Sr., the founder of crypto bank AriseBank, pleaded guilty to one count of securities fraud last Wednesday in federal court. The Dallas News reported yesterday that Rice, who was arrested last year, admitted to scam investors out of $4.2 million by selling AriseCoin tokens and promising that customers would receive Visa credit cards and accounts insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

Neither the cards nor the FDIC accounts existed, though Rice accepted both crypto and fiat during his ICO, which the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) halted in January 2018. According to his plea agreement, the U.S. government and Rice have agreed that the defendant should spend 60 months in prison. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years, a $5 million fine, three years’ supervised release, restitution and forfeiture.
