Everybody remembers Daniel Lorello, right? He's the former NYS Archives employee accused of stealing documents from the State Library and selling them on eBay. Yesterday he entered a guilty plea to a single count of second degree grand larceny, even though the AG's office maintains that he stole more than 1,600 individual items (at least those are the ones they've recovered) over a period of eleven years.
Lorello will be sentenced on 1 October; he faces a 2-6 year prison term plus a $73,000 restitution bill and a $56,000 "confession of judgment", payable to the Department of Education. As Travis says, "we'll see" how those sentences shake out.
