William J. Svatos was president and principal owner of Graphic Planet, Ltd., which was in business from approximately March 2000 through September 2002 in Carrollton, Ohio. The company experienced serious financial problems starting around December 2001. During December 2001 through September 2002, Svatos embezzled approximately $35,327 of the assets of the company's 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan by using plan contributions for Graphic Planet's business operations. This was a violation of his fiduciary duty as plan trustee and custodian.

In addition to the probation, home confinement, and community service, Svatos was also fined $2,000 and ordered to make full restitution of the embezzled funds to the victimized plan participants.
