Law Firm Secretary Faces Theft, Foregery Charges

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ A former secretary at a Waterbury law firm has been arrested on charges she stole more than $1 million and forged dozens of checks and documents.

Barbara Kalpin faces two counts of first-degree larceny and 112 counts of second-degree forgery.

The Republican-American reports (http://bit.ly/1952O2F ) that police say Kalpin, of Southington, wrote 93 checks from a client fund she managed. The 47-year-old Kalpin is accused of using the account to write checks to pay her credit cards bills, to finance multiple mortgages on her home and to take out cash.

The newspaper says Kalpin and her lawyer, Richard Brown of Hartford, did not return phone messages Wednesday seeking comment.
Authorities say the thefts date to 2008 and were discovered by law firm employees in May when Kalpin was on medical leave.
