Former Teamsters lawyer accused of stealing $200k
NEW YORK, Jan 25 (Reuters) – The former general counsel for a Teamsters union has been indicted for defrauding it of more than $200,000 by using forged receipts for legal work and continuing legal education courses.
Kevin Clor, 40, who served as counsel for New York State Thruway Employees Local 72 from 2001 to 2011, faces two counts of grand larceny and multiple counts of possessing forged documents and falsifying business records.
Clor pleaded not guilty on Wednesday in Manhattan state court before Acting Supreme Court Justice Carol Berkman.
Between January 2006 and May 2011, prosecutors say that Clor submitted about 150 forged receipts to the union. The receipts included invoices for more than $100,000 in continuing legal education courses that prosecutors say Clor never attended.
Prosecutors also have accused Clor of submitting more than $22,000 in receipts for Thomson Reuters legal materials that he didn’t purchase.
“He went so far as to make up names of Thomson Reuters employees,” Assistant District Attorney Jose Fanjul told Berkman on Wednesday during Clor’s arraignment.
“The case against him is quite strong,” Fanjul said. “Those receipts were in fact fraudulent.”
