Don't let the door hit you on the way out
From Forest Hills Patch:
A Forest Hills used car dealer who ran his business on Long Island was sentenced to six months in jail and five years probation for attempted grand larceny of more than $2 million.
Boris Michaelov, formerly of 108th Street in Forest Hills, was a naturalized Israeli citizen, fled to Canada in 2007 after he was caught underreporting the value of cars sold at his Long Island dealership. In doing so, Michaelov pocketed more than $2.3 million in pilfered tax money.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown and his team fought a four-year legal battle to extradite Michaelov from Canada so he could face the music.
After his sentence is served, he will be turned over to Immigration agents to be deported.
