Ex-Ameriprise Advisor Awaits Sentencing in $1.2M Fraud Case

Think Advisor

A former Ameriprise Financial advisor in Wichita Falls, Texas, is scheduled for sentencing later this month after pleading guilty to a fraud scheme in which she took more than $1.2 million from clients.

Dusty Sternadel pleaded guilty to wire fraud in January in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas and is scheduled to be sentenced at the federal courthouse in Fort Worth on April 26. She signed a plea agreement in December.

A judge this week denied her attorney’s request to postpone sentencing to give the former advisor more time to obtain the nearly $122,000 needed to protect her family home from forfeiture, according to court records.
