Sentencing postponed for former Deefield chief's wife in $250k theft from her disabled veteran father
Amy Greeley, 43, a former school teacher and state education department disability examiner, pleaded guilty Sept. 30, 2013, to spending the Veterans Administration payments. She admitted forging documents to convince the VA the money was being invested for her father, whose housing and medical care are provided by the VA.
Federal public defender Jeffrey Levin seeks three years of probation for Greeley, with the first year on home confinement, saying she has many medical needs that couldn’t be met in federal prison.
First Assistant U.S. Attorney Donald Feith disputes that. He said Greeley was earning $45,809 per year from 2005 through 2008 as a teacher and her husband, Michael Greeley, as Deerfield chief, was presumably making at least as much as the average Deerfield police officer compensation of $42,000.
Instead, he argued, it appears Amy Greeley chose a lifestyle she could not afford and financed it with her father’s money.
According to the plea agreement, the VA investigation began after Greeley filed a federal fiduciary account report in December 2010. She listed specific CD and checking accounts, with respective account numbers and current balances. The form had the purported signature of the bank manager and seal or stamp of the bank.
Feith said bank records can only be retrieved back to 2004, two years after Greeley’s appointment as fiduciary, but while Levin said Greeley took small amounts at first, within two years Greeley had taken and spent almost $59,000, leaving just under $60 in her father’s account.
Although some of the missing money could be replaced through the bond Greeley was required to purchase as a fiduciary, it would only cover $200,000 of the money taken.
