Paralegal Allegedly Used Forged $285K Law Firm Check to Take Private Jet to NYC for Spending Spree

A paralegal at a Newport Beach, Calif., law firm allegedly stole a check for $19,500 to her employer, had the amount altered to over $285,000 and the check made payable to her roommate.

After the check was deposited into a joint account for paralegal Alexa Johzen Polar, 34, and elementary school teacher Robin Antonella Pabello, 33, authorities say, the two friends flew to New York City with friends in a chartered jet and went on a spending spree, according to the Los Angeles Times and the Murrieta Patch.

However, it wasn’t all about bling: In addition to shopping at Montblanc and Tiffany & Co., the two also allegedly used two fraudulently obtained cashier’s checks to make a a $233,000 deposit toward purchasing a $3.7-million, 11,000-square-foot home in Murrieta, Calif.

It isn’t clear how they might have expected to qualify for a mortgage or make payments, but Detective Greg Faessel of the Cypress, Calif., police, whose department investigated the case, said the women simply wanted a luxurious home in which to spend the holidays and hoped to rent it prior to closing.

The party ended when the bank on which the $19,500 check was drawn rejected it for payment, authorities said. The two women had to return to California on an ordinary coach flight and are now being held in the Orange County case in lieu of $285,000 bail each.

If they make bail, they must prove the source of the funds.

The articles don’t include any comment from the women or their attorneys. The defendants are charged with forgery, grand theft and grand theft by embezzlement.

When someone is accused of a crime they are innocent until
proven guilty or are they?  If they CAN
afford to they will bond out of jail to get back to work and their family. They
will hire private council and have their day in court. How does one get a fair
shake if they can’t afford to get back to their job and hire great council?

attorneys have lowered their prices simply because clients cannot afford
services needed. Some Defendants have remained in jail because they can’t afford
a Bail Bond. As an advocate for my clients I have come up with two solutions that will help clients
get out of jail quickly and back to their family and at an affordable cost.

When an
existing or new client calls an attorney, I understand that I may be the first
person that client meets while taking care of their bond. This will reflect on
the way the client feels or trust the attorney. I hold this in the highest
regard and do not stop until the job is complete. I offer confidential, caring
professional service to attorney clients.
