Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander is taking action against a financial management company connected to the failed Mamtek artificial sweetener plant in mid-Missouri.
In his role as Secretary of State Jason Kander also serves as Missouri’s chief securities regulator.
He’s accusing Morgan Keegan, a Memphis-based firm of helping defraud Missourians based on a list of falsehoods, including the claim the Mamtek held several production patents.
The former CEO of a failed artificial sweetener facility in Moberly has waived his right to a preliminary hearing on charges of theft and securities fraud.
