Heidi Walker, formerly of 69 Lake Avenue (close enough to make her an honorary resident of Round Hill), has plead guilty to fraud; off to the work farm for five years. Her former husband, Peter Pfabe, is also a thief, also going off.
The couple will be sentenced on June 28.
According to a grand jury indictment in 2010, Walker arranged for Deutsche Bank to pay $345,000 and AIG to pay $125,000 to companies run by her husband in exchange for alleged client and marketing services.
Walker oversaw client services at Deutsche Asset Management for all but two months of the May 2002 to January 2006 period and was head of global client service at AIG Global Investment Group from February 2006 to June 2008, according to the 2010 indictment said.
Pfabe was a director of global institutional marketing in an asset management unit of a large bank from April 1999 to April 2003, according to the feds.
Heidi last graced these pages back in November, and you may want to refresh your memory. Good stuff: horse farms, vibrators and even an angry message from Heidi herself.
UPDATE: Heidi’s digs on Lake are still for sale, listed at $1.775 million. The MLS shows 4,255 DOM. I don’t know whether that’s accurate but I do believe she’ll want to sell before her April sentencing. Probably going to be a short sale – Wells Fargo holds a $1.5 mortgage on the place, which is probably more than it’s worth. Could be worth taking a run at, if you like the excitement and ambience of traffic and ambulance sirens.
UPDATE II: Well this is sad. Heidi’s co-conspirator, Peter Pfabe, was a navy pilot who took part in the Libya raid in 1980 and was in the World Trade Center September 11th. Survived all that and came a cropper on greed. He has children, and I’m sorry for them. He probably should have thought of them before heading down this path with Heidi.
UPDATE III: I guess we know how she paid her lawyer’s fees. Sold her horse farm for $1.5 million. House, stables and 85 acres. Seems like a pretty good buy but taxes are $45,000 pee year. Welcome to New York.
UPDATE IV: Heidi borrowed $325,000 from another Greenwich boyfriend, Alf Aanonsen, then claimed it had been a gift when he sued her for its return. She lost.
