On 3/19/2014, Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced the arrest of Lido Beach attorney, with allegations of stealing more than $16,000.
“Due to Hurricane Irene, Mrs. Odery and her family were forced out of their home in Lido Beach. They were then hit with Super-Storm Sandy. Due to the terrible conditions her family had to live in, her mother in-law tragically died of pneumonia. Her then 8 year old daughter also contracted pneumonia twice. Mrs. Odery also contracted Chronic Bronchitis. To add to her stress both her 84 year old mother and 88 year old father had been diagnosed with cancer. Throughout all this chaos she tried her best to continue working and while the allegations leveled against her during this trying time may be sufficient to demonstrate negligence they do not rise to the level of any criminal liability.”
