— The few times he was asked the question, Brouillette would say, "It's my karma. I want to make things right with you. It's humanitarian," reports Davis.

Last month, a superiorcourt judge ruled that there was sufficient evidence for Brouillette to be bound over for trial late this month on ten grand-theft charges. He is already in the slammer because he was nailed in February for cashing stolen checks. The judge kept bail at $500,000.

The great irony is that Brouillette may well get more years than his former mentor, Gallison, Davis says. Under sentencing guidelines, Brouillette could get 25 years.

That wouldn't bother a Salt Lake City company. It told Davis that it had promised a slug of its stock to Brouillette so that he could tout it and also paid him a $20,000 advance. The company never heard from him again. But he still tried to sell the stock to his victims.

Brouillette's lawyer said he would check his client for permission to talk. I never heard back.
