FDIC-91-353e

   Joyce Grasis ("Respondent"), having received a NOTICE OF INTENTION TO PROHIBIT FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("NOTICE") issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") detailing the violations of law, rule, or regulation, breaches of fiduciary duty, and/or unsafe or unsound banking practices alleged to have been engaged in by the Respondent individually and in her capacity as a participant in the conduct of the affairs of, and institution-affiliated party of, Desert Sun Bank, Yuma, Arizona ("Insured Institution"), which have resulted, or will probably result in, financial loss or other damage to the Insured Institution and/or prejudice to the interests of the Insured Institution's depositors and/or Respondent's financial gain or other benefit, and which demonstrate Respondent's willful or continuing disregard for the safety or soundness of the Insured Institution; and having been advised of her right to a hearing on the alleged charges under section 8(e) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e), and Part 308 of the FDIC's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 56 Fed. Reg. 37, 968 (1991) (to be codified at 12 C.F.R. Part 308), and having waived those rights, Respondent entered into a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("CONSENT AGREEMENT") with a representative of the Legal Division of the FDIC dated February 10, 1992, whereby, solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying violations of law, rule, or regulation, breaches of fiduciary duty, and/or unsafe or unsound banking practices, Respondent consented to the issuance of an ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("ORDER") by the FDIC.
   The FDIC considered the matter and determined that it had reason to believe that Respondent had engaged or participated in violations of law, rule, or regulation, breaches of fiduciary duty, and/or unsafe or unsound banking practices which seriously prejudiced the interests of the Insured Institution's depositors, and resulted in substantial financial loss to the Insured Institution, said violations, breaches and/or practices evidencing Respondent's willful or continuing disregard for the safety or soundness of the Insured Institution, and that the violations, breaches, and/or practices evidence Respondent's unfitness to serve as an officer, director, participant in the conduct of the af- {{6-30-92 p.C-2129}}fairs of and/or practices evidence Respondent's unfitness to serve as an officer, director, participant in the conduct of the affairs of and/or institution-affiliated party of the Insured Institution or any other depository institution or agency or organization enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e)(7)(A) (1989). The FDIC, therefore, accepts the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issues the following:
