A former Tulsa financial investment adviser accused of bilking clients pleaded guilty Monday to embezzlement and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Jeffery Plunkett also was ordered to pay more than $625,000 in restitution and will serve 25 years in probation after his release from prison, Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson said.
News On 6 crime reporter Lori Fullbright reports Jeffery Plunkett is accused of stealing from Winston Mobley. Mobley is a former U.S. Marine and the two met while they both worked for Prudential. Mobley says he trained Plunkett and they became best friends.
â€œHe's a very intelligent man, super intellect and personality. I trusted him with everything, even my life," he said.
The Attorney General's office says Plunkett wrote himself checks from Mobley's investment account.
