Paralegal accused of stealing from law firm

•  Breaking Legal News     updated  2011/07/20 09:38

Authorities say a South Florida paralegal stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her Fort Lauderdale law firm.

Miami-Dade officials on Tuesday charged 53-year-old Brenda Wilcott-Kelly with more than 80 felonies, including grand theft and forging documents. Records show she's also took money from a lawyer who was on his deathbed.

Employees of Hermelee & Geffin were in court Tuesday as Judge Dennis Murphy set Wilcott-Kelly's bond at $116,000.

Defense attorney Morgan Cronin said his client is innocent.

According to the arrest affidavit, Wilcott-Kelly took $82,472 from the firm to pay off her husband's credit cards. She is also accused of stealing $31,050 from lawyer Steven A. Schultz, while he was in the hospital. Schultz leased space from the firm.
