With the popularity of criminal dramas on TV and in movies, when one thinks of theft crimes, one of the first crimes that come to mind is burglary. However, what exactly constitutes the crime of burglary in New York?
A former high-level employee of Tiffany & Co., one of New York's most prominent jewelers, confessed to swiping and selling more than 160 items, which amounted to roughly $2.1 million. Following a July 2013 guilty plea, the Connecticut woman faced criminal charges for transporting stolen merchandise. On Dec. 23, a federal judge reportedly ordered the woman to serve one year and one day in prison and submit to supervision for an additional year upon release.
