Ohio GOP lawmaker contesting fraud, theft charges



Published: Fri, July 26, 2013 @ 2:15 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwest Ohio lawmaker that authorities say misled investors and used their money for personal gain has entered a not-guilty plea.

State Rep. Pete Beck is free on a $50,000 bond, with a Hamilton County Common Pleas Court hearing scheduled Aug. 12. The certified public accountant from Mason waived a scheduled arraignment appearance today.

The 60-year-old Republican was indicted last week on charges including theft, securities fraud, making misrepresentations and selling securities in an insolvent company without full disclosure.

Beck has denied the allegations against him as scandalous through his attorneys. He also has brushed away calls for his resignation.
