Using 18% interest rates as a lure, Beverly Hills insurance agent Julian Barton bilked investors out of millions of dollars, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office charged in a 54-count criminal complaint Wednesday. Investors, including Barton's neighbors and fellow members of the Hillcrest Country Club, allegedly received interest payments--some for many years. However, Barton notified investors in February, 1987, that he was unable to return their principal, according to court files.
