Accountant Accused of Aiding Alleged N.Y. District Thefts

By Ann Bradley — September 20, 2005 1 min read

An accountant who audited the Roslyn, N.Y., school district’s books has been charged in connection with the alleged theft of more than $11 million from the district.

Andrew Miller, 56, pleaded not guilty to the charges and is scheduled to appear in court later this month. He was a partner in the firm Miller, Lilly & Pearce and is the fourth person to be charged in connection with the alleged thefts. The district’s former superintendent, former assistant superintendent, and a former account clerk are all awaiting trial in the case.

Denis Dillon, the Nassau County district attorney, said this month that Mr. Miller tampered with the school district’s records to show that legitimate vendors were being paid, when in fact the district was paying personal expenses run up by the three ex-employees who are facing trial.

The accounting firm, which has since closed, worked for more than 50 school districts on Long Island, Mr. Dillon said.
