U.S. Marshals to Auction Embezzler’s Jewelry Online



The U.S. Marshals Service will hold a national jewelry auction online Dec. 2 and 3, consisting of jewelry items seized from convicted criminals. A preview will be held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas, on Dec. 1.

The second day of the auction includes 256 lots of jewelry that once belonged to convicted embezzler Sujata “Sue” Sachdeva, who was convicted of embezzling $34 million from her company Koss Corp. Sachdeva was accused of using company funds to pay for personal purchases, including jewelry.

The other items come from “different criminal cases,” Jason Rzepniewski, an auctioneer with Gaston and Sheehan in Pflugerville, Texas, tells JCK. “There is something for everybody: Watches, diamonds, sports memorabilia. We have a lot of nice jewelry.”

Proceeds of the auction will be reinvested into law enforcement and provided as reparations to victims.
