A Long Island accountant will be arraigned Tuesday after being indicted on charges alleging he stole more than $400,000 from elderly clients and a nonprofit group, Suffolk County DA Thomas Spota said.
Scott Meyer, 47, of Seaford, will appear Dec. 17 at the Suffolk County Court in Riverhead on grand larceny and forgery-related charges, according to online court records. Meyer, a partner at the Huntington-based accounting firm, Johnson and Meyer, was arrested six months ago and charged with second-degree grand larceny.
Meyer had been accused of bilking $150,000 from an 80-year-old Greenport man with dementia, prosecutors said. He is now facing additional charges for allegedly scamming $240,000 from a disabled victim, who has since moved to California, and more than $427,000 from an all-volunteer “rural cemetery association” in Huntington.
Meyer was out of custody Tuesday morning and free on the initial $25,000 bail posted after his arraignment in July, a DA’s office spokesman said.
