GREENWICH, Conn. -- A Greenwich man, Anthony Green, 39, has waived his right to a trial and pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement against a bankruptcy estate, according to Deirdre M. Daly, U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut.
According to court documents and statements made in court, Green was a managing member of a garbage collection business known as T-Green Carting, LLC. In April 2012, the business filed a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut. While the bankruptcy case was pending, Green was required to deposit all of the customer checks for services performed by the company into a debtor-in-possession bank account.
Between April 2012 and May 2013, Green deposited more than $160,000 in cash and cash proceeds that belonged to the T-Green bankruptcy estate into his personal bank accounts. He also transferred funds out of and into T-Green’s debtor-in bank account, resulting in an additional loss of approximately $18,700 from the bankruptcy estate, Daly said.
Sentencing has been set for April 29, at which time Green faces a maximum term of imprisonment of five years, a fine of up to $250,000 and an order of restitution.
The case is being investigated by the FBI and the Greenwich Police Department.
