   Joseph A. Ferrante ("Respondent"), having been advised of his right to a NOTICE OF INTENTION TO PROHIBIT FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("NOTICE")
{{6-30-92 p.C-2130}}issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") detailing the violations of law, rule, and regulation, unsafe or unsound banking practices, and breaches of fiduciary duty alleged to have been engaged in by the Respondent, individually, and in his capacity as a director, officer, person participating in the conduct of the affairs of, and institution-affiliated party of The Bank of Bourbonnais, Bourbonnais, Illinois ("Bank"), which have prejudiced or could seriously prejudice the interests of the Bank's depositors and have resulted in the Respondent's financial gain or other benefit; and which demonstrate the Respondent's personal dishonesty and his willful and continuing disregard for the safety and soundness of the Bank; and having been further advised of his right to a hearing on the charges under section 8(e) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e), and Part 308 of the FDIC 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, the 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 December 26, 1991, whereby, solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying any violations of law, rule, or regulation, any unsafe or unsound banking practices, any breaches of fiduciary duty, or without admitting any other liability, the 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 the Respondent and engaged or participated in violations of law, rule or regulation, unsafe or unsound banking practices, and breaches of his fiduciary duty which have seriously prejudiced or could seriously prejudice the interests of the Bank's depositors and have resulted in the Respondent's financial gain or other benefit, said violations practices, and breaches of fiduciary duty evidencing the Respondent's personal dishonesty and willful or continuing disregard for the safety or soundness of the Bank, and that the violations, practices and breaches of fiduciary duty evidence the Respondent's unfitness to serve as an officer, director, participant in the conduct of the affairs of, and institution-affiliated party of the Bank or any other insured depository institution or agency or organization enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e)(7)(A). The FDIC, therefore, accepts the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issues the following:
