Civil charges likely for Mozilo

The Wall Street Journal confirms today that Securities and Exchange Commission staff will recommend civil fraud charges be filed against Angelo Mozilo, co-founder of Countrywide Financial Corp., for actions related to the company subprime lending practices.

Gabe Friedman of the Los Angeles Daily Journal first reported back in March that SEC staff was pursuing civil charges against Mozilo and at least two other company executives.
