NY woman pleads guilty to embezzlement


Sheila Shattuck, accused of stealing from her former employer, Fall Creek Family Dentist, pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge Tuesday after facing a 17-count indictment. A second indictment is pending against her.

Shattuck, 41, of Cortland, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of petit larceny, a misdemeanor, satisfying a 17-count indictment from April that included 16 counts of first-degree falsifying business records and one count of third-degree grand larceny. After rejecting two plea offers, Shattuck’s trial had been scheduled to begin Tuesday morning in Tompkins County Court.

The second, six-count indictment handed up Thursday includes two counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, two counts of second-degree forgery and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

According to the summary of facts filed in Tompkins County Court related to the first indictment, between March 1, 2013 and July 30, 2014, Shattuck allegedly deleted cash transactions from the accounting records and instead entered false records purporting to reflect credit card payments in the same amounts. By creating the false credit card payment records, the summary of facts states, Shattuck prevented detection of the theft of cash.

Previously, Shattuck was offered two plea deals. If she paid restitution in the amount of $4,530, she could plead guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny and be sentenced to two to four years as a predicate felon. If restitution was not paid, she could plead guilty to third-degree grand larceny with a sentence of three to six years.

Her sentencing is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. March 17. Restitution will be sought separately. Shattuck’s current securing order of $3,000 cash or $20,000 bond continues, but she has posted bail already.

No court date has been scheduled yet related to the second indictment.

Former teen tennis star accused of stealing Rx pads from NY dental office where she worked…again

olivia-dubovikovjpg-2fcd1f11727a66ca-mediumjpg-3344f7ab368af5a7STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A former teen tennis prodigy who was charged in 2010 with stealing prescription pads from a dental office where she worked has been accused a second time of the same crime, authorities allege.

Charleston resident Olivia Dubovikov-Hosten was once the top-ranked 14-year-old female tennis player in the country, but in recent years her life took a wrong turn.

The 34-year-old ex-tennis star was arrested and charged in April 2010 with obtaining 690 painkiller pills using seven forged prescriptions she allegedly stole from a South Beach dental office, according to a previous Advance report.

That case was ultimately dismissed and sealed, said a spokesman for Acting District Attorney Daniel Master.

But apparently she couldn’t stay out of trouble.

Dubovikov is now facing criminal charges for allegedly stealing prescription pads from three separate dental offices where she worked between 2013 and 2015, according to court documents. This time around, she allegedly obtained 842 painkiller pills at various Staten Island pharmacies with 33 forged prescriptions.

A law enforcement source said Dubovikov has a drug problem.

She is also accused of attempting to steal $624 from a patient’s checking account to pay for a storage locker, court documents allege.

The suspect has been charged with multiple felony counts of forgery, possessing a forged instrument and possession of a controlled substance, according to information from the D.A.’s office. She’s also accused of multiple misdemeanor counts of stolen-property possession and petit larceny.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — She was once the top-ranked 14-year-old female tennis player in the country.

But former Annadale resident Olivia Dubovikov’s life has spiraled downward in recent years.

The 29-year-old ex-tennis star hit the nadir Wednesday when she was arrested and charged with stealing prescription pads from a South Beach dental office where she worked. Ms. Dubovikov allegedly obtained 690 painkiller pills with seven forged prescriptions.

“While the doctors were busy I would fill out the script and use patient information to get the scripts filled at various pharmacies in Brooklyn,” Ms. Dubovikov told cops, according to court papers.

Police allegedly found a blank prescription pad in her pocket.

Ms. Dubovikov, who authorities said now lives on Elton Street in Brooklyn, is also accused of stealing three checks from her father’s Arden Heights dental office last year and cashing them for $2,470.

Ms. Dubovikov redeemed the forged checks at a Brooklyn check-cashing shop on July 10, 13 and 15. They were in the respective amounts of $800, $820 and $850.

In November, Ms. Dubovikov began working in a South Beach dental office. A law enforcement source did not know in what capacity.

She allegedly stole prescription pads belonging to two doctors there. Between March 4 and March 27, the suspect forged seven prescriptions in actual patients’ names and used them to score Percocet pills at several Brooklyn pharmacies, authorities charge. The prescriptions were written for between 80 and 110 pills, court papers said.

Ms. Dubovikov obtained 16 additional pills by calling another pharmacy and posing as a doctor, said the source.

She allegedly told police she had become addicted to Percocet.

The suspect is charged with multiple felony counts of forgery and possessing a forged instrument, along with a felony count of grand larceny, said a spokesman for District Attorney Daniel Donovan. She’s also accused of multiple misdemeanor counts of stolen-property possession and petit larceny.

A man who answered Ms. Dubovikov’s cell phone today identified himself as Joshua Hosten, her fiance.

“I really doubt it has any truth,” Hosten said of the allegations as he waited for Ms. Dubovikov to be arraigned in Stapleton Criminal Court. “I’m just hoping the allegations aren’t true.”

Advance records show Ms. Dubovikov was a tennis whiz.

She and her family moved to the United States from Russia when she was a baby. As an eighth-grader, she was ranked the top 14-year-old girls’ tennis player in America. At 16, she was the top-ranked female player 18 and under in the East, and number 10 nationally, according to published reports.

She was a member of the U.S. Junior National Team and later the University of Maryland tennis squad. Ms. Dubovikov participated in the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world — Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the Australian Open and the French Open — according to an online profile.

Dental office receptionist Donna Macli among those indicted in 2007 Wall St. Stock Loan Probe

Six people — four of them Wall Street figures, but also a secretary and a mail carrier — are now caught up in a wider probe that involves an alleged system of finder fees and illegal kickbacks at several Wall Street brokerage firms.

The six were charged in three indictments unsealed today by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.

One of the indictments alleges the dental secretary, Donna Macli, 45, and mail carrier, her husband Thomas Macli, 51, received phony finders fees from her brother, Andrew Caccioppoli, 47, a former manager of the stock loan desk at Janney Montgomery Scott LLC.

The three were charged with conspiracy to commit securities fraud and with mail fraud. The charges against Caccioppoli superseded those in an earlier indictment.

The second indictment charges Darin DeMizio, 42, a former supervisor at Morgan Stanley’s securities lending desk, and Robert Johnson, 44, who represented Tyde Inc., with conspiracy to commit securities and wire fraud.

The third charges Joseph Lando, 35, another former manager of the stock loan desk at Janney, with the same offense, as well as conspiracy to commit commercial bribery in violation of the Travel Act.

The investigation focuses on the practices of brokerage firms that borrow and loan securities and use finding firms that locate the stock to be loaned.

Brokerage firms and investment banks use those practices to cover short sales of stock and as collateral on financial deals. The stock loan finders paid fees for facilitating the stock transactions.

The investigation has widened from initial charges last September that charged former Morgan Stanley and Janney employees — including Caccioppoli — in alleged stock loan schemes.

The investigation has focused on stock loan traders at large brokerage firms that devised fraudulent stock loan transactions, including transactions that involved shell companies allegedly established by one of the defendants’ relatives.

According to the indictment, “DeMizio and others arranged for Morgan Stanley to borrow the securities from and loan securities to certain other broker-dealers who either paid finder fees to Tyde … or who acted as intermediaries between Morgan Stanley and other broker dealers.”

The indictment alleged that Johnson and an unnamed “corrupt stock-loan finder” would transfer a portion of the finder fees to DeMizio’s family members who are identified in the indictment as John Doe #1 and John Doe #2.

A spokeswoman for Morgan Stanley told ABC News in a statement, “The alleged conduct by a former Morgan Stanley employee is in direct violation of the firm’s values and policies. We have fully supported and provided every assistance to the government’s investigation into this matter.”

Johnson also faces money laundering charges for allegedly working with an alleged corrupt trader at JPMorgan Chase identified in the indictment as “Trader B.” The indictment alleged that between 1994 and 2003 Johnson and others were devising “a scheme to cause themselves and others to receive finder fees in connection with stock loan transactions involving … the JPMorgan Chase Securities … loaned by Trader B on behalf of JP Morgan Chase.”

The indictment alleged that “Trader B” caused JP Morgan to loan the securities at below market rates to intermediary brokerage firms including a firm identified as IBC located in the Netherlands Antilles, after the transfers occurred IBC spread the finder fees to Johnson and the JP Morgan trader.

“Johnson and Trader B entered into these financial arrangements without the knowledge or approval of JPMorgan Chase,” the indictment noted.

A spokesman for JP Morgan declined to comment on the matter.

To date, 18 defendants have pleaded guilty in the investigation included former employees at A.G. Edwards, Oppenheimer & Co., Morgan Stanley; TD Waterhouse Kellner Dileo & Company, Inc.; Inc, Nomura Securities International, Inc.; PFPC Worldwide Inc.; Schonfeld Securities, LLC; and Van der Moolen Specialists.
