State Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm says Bart Winterton of Vernal, Utah, operated as an insurance producer without being licensed in North Dakota. Hamm's cease-and-desist order bars Winterton from engaging in any insurance business in the state.
Winterton issued a statement to The Associated Press acknowledging that he made "errors in assumptions regarding activities I could be involved in without an insurance license." He says he will abide by the terms of Hamm's order.
