Bookkeeper Achan Stole In Name of Bronx Retiree Now Pleads But Will Not Say Who

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 1 –  Elizabeth Achan was a bookkeeper at a business in The Bronx when in 2015 she began paying herself in the name and social security number of a retired employee.  

 Later the IRS confronted the retiree for not paying tax on the payments they had never received. Achan was arrested and pled not guilty.

  On October 1 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Laura Taylor Swain held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  The allocution was not as smooth as it might have been. Judge Swain asked Achan if she had known to whom the money she stole should have gone.

Her lawyer cut in it say the allocution was already sufficient and that could be dealt with at sentencing. The case is US v. Achan, 20-cr-87 (Swain)
