WICHITA – (November 19, 2019) – An Andover man has been found guilty of four violations of the Kansas Uniform Securities Act, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Lawrence Hagedorn, 64, today pleaded guilty in Sedgwick County District Court to four felony counts of criminal violations of securities regulations.

Hagedorn agreed to pay $102,500 in restitution to the two victims.

District Judge David J. Kaufman took the plea and scheduled sentencing for January 15 at 1:30 p.m.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stacy Edwards of Schmidt’s office.
