NY Man Sentenced To 10+ Years For Stealing Millions From Miami Beach

A New York man will spend more than 10 years in prison after admitting to stealing $3.5 million in public funds from the City of Miami Beach to buy football tickets.

David J. Miller, 45, was handed down a 124-month prison sentence and ordered to pay more than $1.5 million to the victims — City Hall, the bank where Miami Beach had its account and the website where Miller spent the money — on Friday.

The scheme dates back to July 2016, when court records suggest that Miller began taking money from a Miami Beach account at SunTrust Bank using account and routing numbers he had somehow obtained.

Miller used the funds primarily to buy football tickets and pricey “seat licenses,” which allow the holder to purchase season or individual game tickets, at NFL stadiums across the country.
