The Securities and Exchange Commission has barred Martin Stancik, a former registered representative with Voya Financial who is now serving a 65-month prison term for mail fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Mr. Stancik, who was affiliated with Voya Financial until 2014, pleaded guilty in July 2017 to misappropriating almost $544,400 from four customers between 2003 and 2015, and forging a check made payable to one of those clients. In November 2017, he was sentenced to prison and three years of supervised release. He also was ordered to pay the sum misappropriated in restitution.
