Sean David Morton Statement
The SEC filing is only a civil action at the moment, which can't send him to jail. All they can do is "enjoin" him from doing stuff and seize his assets, of which he claims none. Sean is nothing if not resilient, and I'm sure he will rise to the occasion and find a new scam to work. The important thing now is to play the victim, thereby tapping into the anti-government subculture. It's a whole new reservoir of suckers to milk!
You can't buy publicity like this, Sean. Run with it!
