Charles Moore, the former chief executive officer of broker-dealer Crucible Capital, Inc., was sentenced to six months in prison for obstructing a Securities and Exchange Commission regulatory investigation. The US Attorney’s Office in New York City previously filed criminal charges against Mr. Moore for having a Crucible employee falsify certain invoices received from third-party vendors by removing mention of past due balances in order to support certain Crucible SEC-required capital computations. The US Attorney’s Office claimed these altered invoices were subsequently given to the SEC during an examination of Crucible.
