Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne’s estranged husband Tom Girardi has just been indicted on fraud charges.
Former chief financial officer of Girardi Keese, Christoper Kamon and Girardi’s son-in-law, fellow lawyer David Lira were also charged.
Prosecutors announced the charges, adding that the men had been “charged with eight counts of wire fraud and four counts of contempt of court” after allegedly embezzling more than $3 million in settlement funds meant for relatives of victims who died in a 2018 plane crash in Indonesia.
“Mr. Girardi and Mr. Kamon stand accused of engaging in a widespread scheme to steal from their clients and lie to them to cover up the fraud,” attorney Martin Estrada said in a statement. “In doing so, they allegedly preyed on the very people who trusted and relied upon them the most — their clients. Actions like the ones alleged in the indictment bring disrepute upon the legal profession and will not be tolerated by my office.”
