White-Collar Mastermind Sam Antar to Discuss Role in Securities Fraud at American University Washington College of Law Event


WASHINGTON, D.C., March 16, 2012 - Sam Antar, who as CFO of the Crazy Eddie electronics stores helped oversee millions of dollars in skimmed funds from the public company, will speak at American University Washington College of Law, Thursday, March 22 at 4:30 p.m.

Antar will tell of his involvement in one of the largest cases of securities fraud, and will discuss how to detect and prevent white collar crime.

Antar and other members of his family were investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission beginning in 1987. To avoid going to prison, Antar agreed to testify as a witness for the government in the civil and criminal phases beginning in 1993. He now appears before state and federal agencies and legislatures to advise lawmakers and regulators on how to detect and prevent white-collar crime.

The program is presented by the law school’s Program on Law and Government.
