Two residents in Florida pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing the diary of Ashley Biden, President Joe Biden’s daughter, then leaking personal information to members of the media.
“Aimee Harris and Robert Kurlander pleaded guilty Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property involving the theft of personal belongings of an immediate family member of a then-former government official who was a candidate for national political office,” reports Fox News.
“Harris and Kurlander stole personal property from an immediate family member of a candidate for national political office,” Damian Williams, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said in a statement. “They sold the property to an organization in New York for $40,000 and even returned to take more of the victim’s property when asked to do so. Harris and Kurlander sought to profit from their theft of another person’s personal property, and they now stand convicted of a federal felony as a result.”
“As they’ve admitted with today’s pleas, the defendants conspired to steal an individual’s personal property, which they subsequently sold to a third party and delivered across state lines,” FBI Assistant Director Michael J. Driscoll said in a statement. “As a consequence of their actions, they now face punishment in the federal criminal justice system for their crimes. I’d like to thank the Public Corruption Units at both the FBI’s New York Office and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York for their dedicated effort in this case.”
