NORWICH– Less than four years ago, a Norwich restaurant owner and his manager were convicted of bilking thousands from their customers’ credit cards. Last week, another jury convicted one of them of forgery in Manhattan.
Former manager of Hand’s Inn Restaurant, Kevin Aguilar, 38, was convicted Jan. 29 of two counts of forgery and offering a false document for filing, all felonies.
Aguilar was attempting to retrieve his mother’s car from the New York City Department of Finance for outstanding parking tickets, explained Jennifer Kushner, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan Attorney’s Office.
A Chenango County jury convicted Aguilar on May 27, 2005 for unlawfully debiting over $2,900 from patrons’ accounts at Hand’s Inn between June and December 2003.
