Stockbroker, former OU football player, indicted

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A former Oklahoma and professional football player is pleading innocent to 19 felony charges handed down by a federal grand jury.

Adrian Cooper of Edmond is charged with securities fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and using a false Social Security number in his work as a stockbroker.

Cooper is accused of cheating investors out of about $400,000.

Cooper was a tight end at OU and played six years in the NFL with Pittsburgh, Minnesota and San Francisco during the 1990s.

He became a stockbroker in 1999 and worked for Merrill Lynch. He resigned last year under pressure and is now prohibited from working as a stockbroker in Oklahoma.

Prosecutors say there is no allegation of wrongdoing by Merrill Lynch and a Merrill Lynch spokesman says all of Cooper's former clients who've shown he took their money have been compensated.
