A former city court employee allegedly made $433,000 in purchases using court funds to enrich himself, his family, and his friends, federal prosecutors said Monday.
William Rullo, 47, of Levittown, was charged with mail fraud and faces a maximum 20 years in prison. Rullo worked in the procurement department of the First Judicial District and used a court credit card, a check, and forged invoices for his personal benefit, federal prosecutors said.
Among the items and services allegedly purchased by Rullo: 36 plasma and LCD televisions, monthly service for eight mobile phones used by family members and friends, $35,000 in monthly parking passes that he resold to friends and coworkers, and $1,300 in SEPTA tokens that he resold at a discount. - Robert Moran
