Syracuse, New York attorney charged with identity theft

Prosecutors have charged New York attorney Bonnie Strunk with stealing the identity of her law partner's husband, which she allegedly used to open a fraudulent credit card account.  Strunk is also charged with felony tax fraud.

Strunk was initially charged in May with felony counts of third-degree grand larceny and first-degree identity theft involving allegations she used the name of Dr. Robert Seidenberg – the husband of her long-time law partner, Faith Seidenberg – to open a Capital One MasterCard account.  Strunk allegedly used the credit card to pay over $17,000 in veterinary bills from Georgia, Paypal accounts in California and airline tickets on JetBlue.

Now she has been charged for failing to file a 2008 tax return when she had a tax liability of over $11,000.  Strunk is allegedly attempting to negotiate a plea deal.
