Mr. Marino, who worked at the firm's Pompano Beach, Fla., office, was fired by the firm last November for "accepting gifts totaling approximately $20,500 from a client and using the same client's credit card ... for his personal benefit in the amount of approximately $6,700," according to a letter of acceptance, waiver and consent made public by Finra.

Mr. Marino accepted the Finra bar. He had not been registered before joining Edward Jones in 2013.
