The CFO of Tom Girardi’s law firm has embezzled $10 million from the company to pay prostitutes and its extensive real estate portfolio that includes homes in the Caribbean and Los Angeles, prosecutors say in new court documents.
Christopher Kamon, 49, was arrested last week as part of the ongoing investigation into Girardi’s law firm.
Girdardi, 83, has been charged in civil court over allegations that he has stolen money from customers and made settlements from widows and orphans to fund his lavish lifestyle.
Real Housewives star Erika Jayne with husband Tom Girardi. She filed for divorce shortly before he was first charged with customer theft in civil courts. Now the CFO of his law firm has been arrested
The case took place in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, starring his now estranged wife Erika Jayne.
Neither Girardi nor Jayne has been arrested.
She has been named as a defendant in a number of lawsuits against her elderly ex-husband, but has been acquitted in at least two cases and continues to challenge her innocence.
After the news of Kamon’s arrest came out this week, she shared a screenshot of an article on Instagram as well as “this is getting crazier and crazier.”
Kamon’s arrest brings a new criminal element to the case; he was picked up at Baltimore-Washington International Airport last week after landing on a flight from the Bahamas.
After news of Kamon’s arrest came out this week, she shared a screenshot of an article that wrote on Instagram and said “this is getting crazier and crazier.”
Prosecutors say he stole $10 million from the company in his own “side fraud” that grew into a larger “theft scheme.”
The Los Angeles Times reports that Kamon, who worked at the company for 20 years, was living “far above” his $350,000-a-year salary on the money he allegedly stole.
During his first court appearance, prosecutors criticized his greed.
“This isn’t a Robin Hood-style theft. This is pure greed and a lavish lifestyle,” said one of them.
The charges against Kamon remain sealed, so much of the evidence against him is unknown.
Prosecutors say they have reason to believe that if they were released on bail, Kamon would flee to the Bahamas.
