Manhattan Court Worker Stole $160,000 in Fines, District Attorney Says

Today 02:28 GMT

A court office assistant stole more than $160,000 in fines paid by businesses and people who had been ticketed in Manhattan for minor offenses like drinking alcohol in public and violating the fire code, a prosecutor said in court on Tuesday.

As a result, bench warrants were issued for 15 people who had pleaded guilty by mail and paid their fines, which were as little as $25, including five who were subsequently arrested, Robert Cannata, an assistant district attorney in the Public Corruption Unit, said at Mr. Sanchez’s arraignment.
