Criminal Defense News: Lawyer Guilty of Embezzling Millions
Former Shoplet general counsel (the "Defendant") has pleaded guilty to grand larceny for embezzling nearly $6 million from the office supply company. The Defendant is accused of funneling the money from Shoplet’s PayPal accounts into his personal PayPal accounts. He then moved the money into his own accounts to fund a luxury lifestyle, according to a Sept. 3 press release by the Manhattan district attorney’s office.
The plea agreement covered actions between May 2013 and June 2019, according to the press release.
Judge Andrew Borrok granted a default judgment to the company in November 2019. Defendant stipulated in January that the amount of damages owed was $6.8 million, with annual interest of 9%.
