Dwight Shane Baldwin Sentenced to Four to 30 Years

SALT LAKE CITY May 27, 2016 –The Office of the Attorney General (OAG)
announced today that Dwight Shane Baldwin, more commonly known as Shane
Baldwin, was sentenced to between four and 30 years for four counts of
Securities Fraud and three counts of Communications Fraud, all 2nd Degree
Felonies. Baldwin was prosecuted by the Mortgage and Financial Fraud Unit
of the OAG after an investigation by the Utah Division of Securities and
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes released the following statement in
relation to the sentencing:
“It continues to be important that people verify the legitimacy of any deal
or offering before ever trusting anyone, even close friends and family,
with money to invest. This case is an excellent example of the damage that
can be wrought upon innocent victims when trust is violated. We hope
citizens will take great precautions, including checking the White Collar
Fraud Offender Registry, when making investments of any sort. I cannot
emphasize this enough. Fraud destroys lives. Fraud decimates families and
businesses. Utahans must do everything in their power to protect themselves
while we continue to aggressively investigate and prosecute fraudsters.
“We appreciate the fine work and cooperation of our partners, the Utah
Division of Securities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We also
thank the United States Attorney’s Office for inviting us to lead the
prosecution of this case.”
