He pleaded guilty in Westchester County court on Wednesday.
Over a period of more than five years between Jan. 5, 2009 and May 6 of this year, Daday, who worked as a parking enforcement officer for the Village of Mount Kisco, emptied parking meters in the town and put some of the proceeds – usually in the form of quarters – into his own bank account at the People’s United Savings Bank on Moger Avenue in Mount Kisco, prosecutors said.
Prosecutor said Daday stole more than $89,000 in parking meter revenue.READ MORE: Biden Administration To Give Out 400 Million Free N95 Masks
