According to the Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent (AWC), Mackland failed to provide documents and information in connection with criminal charges pending against him, including alleged theft and fraudulent sales practices. The alleged misconduct occurred when he was associated with MML Investors Services in Omaha, Nebraska from March 2017 to September 2018.

The customer is requesting nearly $2.9 million in damages.
