Employee Who Stole More Than $500,000 From Law Firm Sentenced to Eight Years in the Illinois Department of Corrections

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin announced today Le Anna Kelty, 55 (d.o.b. 3/6/1960) of 8826 Teal Ln, Wilmington, IL, a former employee at a Naperville law firm, has been sentenced to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for stealing more than $500,000 from the firm over a six year period. On January 8, 2016, Kelty entered a plea of guilty to one count of Theft in Excess of $500,000, a Class 1 non-probationable Felony, in front of Judge Robert Miller.

Kelty worked in the accounting department at the law firm. Beginning in November, 2006, through February, 2013, Kelty forged her employers’ signatures and deposited unauthorized checks drawn against the firm’s bank accounts into her personal bank accounts. Kelty’s scheme unraveled approximately one year after she left the firm when authorities at the firm discovered discrepancies in their books and, following an internal audit, contacted law enforcement.

            “Without blinking an eye, Leanna Kelty stole approximately one half a million dollars from her former employer over the course of six years,” Berlin said. “She abused the fiduciary trust placed in her and in doing so caused great hardship to the firm and her fellow co-workers. Thanks to the efforts of the Naperville Police Department, particularly Detective Elena Deuchler, with assistance from my office, she was caught, successfully prosecuted and will be held accountable for her actions. I would like to thank the law firm where Ms. Kelty was formerly employed for their assistance and cooperation throughout this case. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Ken Tatarelis for his work in holding Ms. Kelty responsible for her criminal behavior.”

Kelty must serve 50% of her sentence before being eligible for parole.
