Scott Stuber appeals from his convictions of four counts of unlawfulacts in connection with the sale of securities, one count of acting as a broker-dealer withoutbeing registered, and one count of offering for sale unregistered securities. On appeal, Stuberargues (1) that his waiver of a jury trial was not voluntary; (2) that the trial court lackedsubject matter jurisdiction because the transactions in question are subject to the exclusivejurisdiction of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC); (3) that he is entitledto a new trial because the State charged multiple alternative allegations in the counts ofunlawful acts in connection with the sale of securities; (4) that venue was lacking on one ofthe charges; and (5) that the trial court erred in overruling his challenge to his criminalhistory score. We disagree and affirm.
