Former Vancouver lawyer John Briner has pleaded guilty to criminal charges in the Provincial Court of British Columbia stemming from violations of a ban that the B.C. Securities Commission imposed in 2011. He entered the plea in an appearance on the afternoon of Tuesday, Feb. 9. The judge sentenced him to a $1,000 fine.

Prosecutors claimed that Mr. Briner, 38, violated a five-year ban that he received for aiding the pump-and-dump of an OTC Bulletin Board listing, Golden Apple Oil & Gas Inc. The BCSC had imposed that ban on April 5, 2011, barring him from trading, serving as an officer or director, carrying out investor relations work, and from acting in a management or consulting role in the securities market. The government said that he was never in compliance with the BCSC order, as he remained a director of a number of entities, including his own law firm. He also became involved in a shell scheme in the United States while subject to the ban.
