So you’ve just embezzled $8.7 million and you’re into collector cars. So what do you buy?
Well, if you’re 55-year-old former construction company controller Sue O’Neill and her as-yet unidentified partner, you buy a pair of 1969 Shelby GT500 Mustangs — a fastback and a convertible — and a 1953 Mercury Monterey, a 1966 Pontiac GTO, a 1969 Ford Mustang (on which they spent more than $160,000 restoring) and a 1978 Chevrolet Corvette.
At least that’s what the Equipment World website reports, adding that O’Neill and her partner also bought some construction equipment, including a track loader, excavator and trailers.
The website also reported that O’Neill pled guilty and agreed to pay mandatory restitution including more than $400,000 in back taxes and fines. She faces as much as 20 years in prison, with the court scheduled to make that determination in March, 2020.
