Ex-husband of JLO and popular American Singer, Marc Anthony, had accused his accountant of stealing over $9 million from him, the accountant has finally been sentenced to six years in jail.
The Accountant, Kyle Tessiero, took a plea deal in June and admitted to stealing millions from Anthony’s American Express card in order to pay for his luxurious lifestyle which included spending tens of thousands on strip clubs, exotic travel and expensive dinners.
Manhattan Criminal Court Judge, Laurie Peterson gave the sentence Tessiero.
“Today, the court sentenced Kyle to a term of two to six years, recognizing that he told the DA about this crime before anyone was aware of it, and due to his good character,” said defense lawyer Marc Agnifio.
The robbery was uncovered when AmEx questioned one of the unauthorized charges and a guilt-ridden Tessiero confessed to the police.
Tessiero, who is an LA-based accountant famous for representing Pharrell and Drake, pulled off the eight-year-long scheme by using the singer’s bank account to pay off the card as he spent.
