A 31-year-old former stockbroker in Ventura County and the San Fernando Valley has been indicted in federal court in Los Angeles on 11 counts of fraud for allegedly stealing $100,000 from clients between 1987 and 1989. Michael T. Donine of Santa Monica allegedly stole the money by falsifying letters of authorization from four customers that allowed their money to be transferred into bank and credit card accounts controlled by Donine, said Ronni B. MacLaren, assistant U.S. attorney.
