COO of Westbury Body Armor Firm Gets 7 Years for Fraud

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The former chief operating officer of a Westbury-based body armor supply company was sentenced Friday to seven years in prison following her $200 million fraud conviction four years ago. Sandra Hatfield and her boss, David Brooks, the founder of DHB Industries, were convicted in September 2010 of securities fraud, insider trading, conspiracy and obstruction of justice after prosecutors argued that the pair artificially-inflated the company’s stock and looted the business for personal gain. Hatfield also pleaded guilty to filing a false income tax return. The 60-year-old from LaFollette, Tennessee was also ordered to forfeit approximately $1.8 million in illicit profits. DHB supplied body armor to the U.S. military and law enforcement agencies. Hatfield resigned in November 2005 and Brooks was removed as CEO in 2006. The company later relocated to Florida and was renamed Point Blank Solutions, Inc. Trading on the American Stock Exchange was suspended in May 2006 when the scheme became public. United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Loretta Lynch said in a statement that “rather than honor the bravery of those who donned DHB’s products, Hatfield preyed upon investors, lied to them, and looted the company.” Prosectors characterized Hatfield as a liar who not only filed a false tax return, but also misled the Security and Exchanges Commission when they came knocking. Brooks was sentenced last August to 17 years in prison for what prosecutors called his “leadership role” in the fraud.last_img read more

The Money Fight: Mayweather Requests The Use Of Lighter Gloves Against McGregor

first_imgAmerica’s Floyd Mayweather has officially requested to use lighter gloves against Conor McGregor in “The Money Fight” next month.Undefeated Mayweather submitted necessary documents to the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC), the body authorizing the bout, on Wednesday, requesting to use the 8oz gloves.According to the NAC rules, 154 lbs fighters require 10oz gloves, as lighter gloves give less cushion to the hand but theoretically enables devastating punches.Speaking to the BBC, NAC Executive Director Bob Bennett, said: “Even if they are both in agreement, our number one policy is the health and safety of the fighters,”“To deviate from our regulations at a difference of 7lbs would be for the chairman and commissioners to determine.”The request is now subject to a debate by the NAC Council before a final decision will be made ahead of the August 26 bout in Las Vegas.Relatedlast_img read more

I Feel Pretty …

first_imgBy Kathy MieleIt was early on a weekend morning when I decided to give myself a day of pampering.Going through the cabinets in my bathroom I found all the products that would make me beautiful. The first step was smoothing on a thick layer of clay on my face. Once that was done I sat back on the couch ready to read the newspaper and wait for my facemask to harden.Steven walked in and did a quick double take. “What’s that for?” he asked.“It’s a detox mask,” I answered barely moving my lips and wondering if maybe becoming a ventriloquist was in my future.“What are you detoxing from?” he asked.“Can’t talk, mask is hardening.” I picked up the newspaper again and continued my relaxing.Once the mask was done, I decided to put a deep-oil treatment in my hair and a peppermint mask on my feet.Steven walked by again. “Wow! What’s that smell?” He looked at my feet propped up on the coffee table encased in a chalk-like substance and my oily hair on top of my head wrapped in plastic wrap.“It’s the peppermint. I’m recharging my tired feet.”I’d finished with the newspaper and had moved on to a book. “After 10 minutes I can rinse this off then I’ll put on a thick layer of shea butter before I put on a pair of white cotton socks, two hours later my feet will be baby soft and completely rehydrated.”“With a smell like that I bet you’re opening up your sinuses too!” Steven held his hand over his nose as he walked past me to go to the kitchen. “I know mine are,” he mumbled.Twenty minutes later, freshly out of the shower, the deep-oil treatment was done and my hair was air drying. No heat from a blow dryer was going to mess up a 20-minute oil treatment!I sat back on the couch ready to start my manicure. With my wet hair now hanging around my newly detoxed face and my feet sliding around in my white cotton socks, (I might have gone a little too heavy with the shea butter), I began buffing my nails.Steven came by again. “Are done in the bathroom?” he asked. “I’d like to get my shower.”“I am, but be careful in the shower,” I called. “My oil treatment might have left the floor of the shower a little slippery.”When Steven came out of the shower, my nails were finished and drying. “Thanks for the warning,” he said. “It was pretty slippery in there.”“Sorry about that. I’ll scrub it out later when I’m finished.” I waved my fingers back and forth and began blowing on them. “Do you want some lunch?” I asked.“Sure, what are you making?” he asked.“I was hoping you’d make something,” I said as I waved my fingers around. “I’m still drying.”“I was going to make some eggs,” he said. “Do you want some?”“That would be perfect,” I said as I grabbed my book and settled back into the cushions of the couch wondering why I didn’t do these beauty treatment weekends more often.last_img read more
