The suspension was in effect from October 19, 2020, through November 6, 2020.

According to the FINRA findings, Maines allegedly exercised 75 discretionary trades in 24 customer accounts. The findings stated that although Maines had contacted each customer days prior and acknowledged her trading, she had not received written consent from them or approval from her firm. Maines is currently still associated with Cadaret Grant.
