April 18, 2013 -- Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced today that Louis Ciampanelli (DOB 02/17/55) of 1 Nelson Road, Eastchester, New York, was arraigned on a Felony Complaint charging him with:

  • one count of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, a class “D” Felony.

Between Dec. 14, 2010 and Feb. 13, 2012, the defendant provided personal and business accounting and tax preparation services to John Nardini Construction, Inc.   

According to the owner and his wife, rather then pay the United States Internal Revenue Service or the New York State Tax Department directly, the defendant had instructed them to provide him with checks, made payable to either Louis Ciampanelli or LMC Tax Consultants.

Ciampanelli told the victims that he would then, in turn, make the payments on their behalf to the taxing agencies.

The defendant never paid the taxing authorities for either their personal taxes or the businesses taxes. The funds were converted for his own use.  

The amount of the larceny is approximately $47,000.  
The defendant was arrested yesterday by our investigators from the District Attorneys Office.

He was arraigned in Eastchester Town Court and bail was set at $5,000 cash/$15,000 bond.

The case was adjourned to June 12, 2013.

The investigation into the larceny is continuing.

Should anyone believe that they have been victimized, they can check their tax status with the respective taxing authorities and can also contact the District Attorney’s Office to file a complaint.

The defendant faces a maximum sentence of seven years in state prison.

Assistant District Attorney Robert Mayes of the Economic Crimes Bureau is prosecuting the case.
