‘Law & Order: SVU’ star’s manager accused of fraud
NEW YORK (AP) - A star of the TV series “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” is getting her own taste of law and order _ in real life.
According to court papers, Joseph Cilibrasi (chih-lee-BRAH’-zee) and his accounting firm started stealing from Tunie in 2002, listing himself as her husband to secure a credit card tied to her account. He is also accused of writing checks to himself.
The 50-year-old Manhattan man pleaded not guilty earlier this week and is being held on $100,000 bail. Cilibrasi’s attorney says Tunie was “fully aware” of the transactions and he’ll fight the charges.
He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
