Businessman Passed Bad Checks, DA Says

Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe today announced that Yoel Silber, 37, of 2 Lynhaven Drive, New City, was found guilty following a jury trial of: 
  • One count of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, a class “E” Felony 
  • Ten counts of Issuing a Bad Check, class “B” Misdemeanors 
According to the DA's office:

On or about Feb. 6, 2013, Silber stole $1,694.72 from Provident Bank in New City by wrongfully withdrawing funds from his business checking account after depositing ten “bad” checks drawn upon his accounts at another bank in which he had insufficient funds. 
The defendant, the owner of three businesses, Promtix, LLC, Prom Fantasy Magazine, LLC, and Wedding Fantasy Magazine, LLC, deposited the checks drawn upon two Citibank accounts connected to his various businesses, into his Provident account, opened under Promtix. The Citibank accounts had insufficient funds to cover the ten deposited checks. 
Following the verdict, the defendant continues to be out on bail. 
Silber faces a maximum sentence of four years in state prison when he is sentenced on June 10, 2014. 
Assistant District Attorney John W. McGowan prosecuted the case.

Yoel, the only mistake you made is you did not contribute over $75000 to Rockland County politicians. Why is funneling political contributions legal Mr Zugibe?
