WILMINGTON — A former financial advisor for Moran Stanley Smith Barney was sentenced to 87 months in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud and money laundering in September.

Once released from prison, Good will serve three years under supervised release; he was also ordered to pay $3,619,594 in restitution to his victims. At least 12 people invested with Good, who solicited investments for purported real estate projects and tax-free municipal bonds. He then convinced his clients to wire their money to his personal bank account.

Good used the money for personal expenditures — his Wilmington residence, a Florida condominium, luxury vehicles, fine dining and vacations to several destinations, including France and Italy.

According to U.S. attorney Michael Easely, who sentenced Good, the victims included a widow, retired police officer and single mom.

“He did it out of pure greed, to fuel his lavish lifestyle,” Easely wrote in a press releas.
