'CHiPs' Larry Wilcox Charged With Securities Fraud

10/7/2010 5:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Wilcox of "CHiPs" fame has just been charged with securities fraud.

Larry Wilcox scam.
The Securities and Exchange Commission just charged Wilcox and more than a dozen others with allegedly manipulating the volume and price of penny stocks to illegally generate stock sales.  Translation: Wilcox and the others allegedly set up a phony company to generate bogus stock sales.

This is not a criminal charge.  The SEC is asking for an injunction against Wilcox and some of the others, as well as financial penalties.

Two things:

1. I think this man is innocent until proven guilty.

2. I can't stand a thief.

At this point it's just an allegation. They have to prove it in court. I haven't heard anything bad about this guy, so my guess is that it's a misunderstanding. The SEC would rather fry small people, but it looks the other way with the big ones, unless they've done something really bad that you just can't ignore it.
I love ChiPs, by the way. Both Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox were great and very entertaining.

Instead of testifying, he should just play the theme from Chips. I'd find him not guilty immediately.

..It's all good, I'm sure he can always count on Erik Estrada, Paul Linke, Robert Pine, Randi Oakes or all of the other broke has been "actors" for financial assistance during these tough times... Oh wait, those other guys are broke too, having not worked since 1983... And doing community theatre for free isn't work, so don't even go there...

WHY NO CRIMINAL CHARGES??? He must have been in the car with the Gucci Purse full of coke......
He is a con artist, a cheater and a scammer to have done this. No company, no product but he planted a money tree and fertilized it with bullS$$$ and picked off other people's money. I'll never look at him again without seeing a con man. Puke on him.
