New York-based Joseph Cilibrasi plead guilty to grand larceny Thursday after secretly opening a credit card in actress Tamara Tunie's name for his own use.
A bit of justice was served for Law & Order: SVU actress Tamara Tunie Thursday.
Tunie's longtime business manager, Joseph Cilibrasi plead guilty to grand larceny and other charges in court after getting caught stealing about $1.4 million from her, reports the Associated Press.
Authorities say Cilibrasi admitted to secretly opening a credit card in the actress' name and also wrote checks from her bank accounts without her knowledge.
He also fessed up to bilking about $75,000 from the Kansas City Symphony's music director Michael Stern.
Cilibrasi could serve anywhere from two and a half to seven and a half years in prison. He will be sentenced Jan. 4.
