This suburban Philadelphia mom has problems
In 2009 Bonnie Sweeten made national news when she lied that she and her 9-year old daughter were abducted by two black men in a Cadillac.
Sweeten had taken money from her ex-husband’s 92-year-old grandfather to repay a law firm client where she worked. She had previously stolen money from the client. Her ex-husband’s family demanded the money back, so she wrote the family a check.
Sweeten fled to Disney World the day the check bounced.
Sweeten, serving time in prison after pleading guilty to identity theft and to making false reports, is now accused of stealing $700,000 from the law firm where she worked. She also posed as her boss to get a mortgage on the law office’s property, which she used to repay another of her debts.
Sweeten has been indicted on multiple federal crimes, including "14 counts of wire fraud, two counts of aggravated identity theft, mail and bank fraud, money laundering and related offenses."
