"It's not her money. She has no legal claim to that money."
Kelyn Spadoni ended up getting arrested last Wednesday, April 7, after she allegedly refused to return over $1.2 million which has been deposited into her account by accident.
According to reports, the 33-year-old Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office employee has already been fired from her job following her arrest. She is now facing theft charges valued over $25,000, bank fraud, and illegal transmission of monetary funds.
Apparently, a clerical error by multinational financial services firm Charles Schwab & Co. led to the mistake after they deposited more than $1.2 million into Spadoni’s brokerage account when they only intended to transfer around $82.
The bank tried to retrieve the funds but failed to do so as it was no longer available. As it turns out, Spadoni immediately transmitted the money into a different account and allegedly used some of them to buy a house and a car. Naturally, Charles Schwab made multiple efforts to get in touch with Spadoni but were unsuccessful in retrieving the funds.
Sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Jason Rivarde said:
“It’s not her money. She has no legal claim to that money. Even if it was put in there by mistake. It was an accounting error.”
He further added:
“If someone accidentally puts an extra zero on a utility payment, they would want that money returned or credited to them. This is no different.”
Spadoni is currently being detained at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center with a $5,000 bond. As of this writing, around 75% of the money has been reclaimed.
Spadoni has been a sheriff’s office 911 dispatcher for the past 4 and 1/2 years.
