ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Following an appeal of a 2013 Grand Larceny conviction for an Albany woman, District Attorney David Soares has announced the trial conviction will be upheld.
Officials say 52-year-old Mahadaye Khan was found guilty of stealing from the Albany County Department of Social Services in October of 2013.
Officials say Khan requested, and accepted security deposits for tenants in multiple properties and did not return the deposits to the Department of Social Services as required after the tenants moved out. Also, Khan did not file state income tax for two years, totaling more than $3,000.
Khan was convicted of multiple felonies including Grand Larceny and Criminal Tax Fraud. She was sentenced to 6 months in prison followed by 5 years of felony probation.
Khan appealed the conviction alleging that she did not receive a fair trial due to several court rulings. She also asserted that the trial court should not have allowed certain statements in to evidence.
The Appellate Division denied Khan’s appeal unanimously.
