Spadine and daughter found guilty

October 10, 2003

Albany - A verdict late Friday afternoon in the federal fraud trial of an Albany father and daughter.

John "Sonny" Spadine was found guilty on 31 of the 42-counts of fraud. The jury convicted Heather Hoover on seven of 18-counts.

They defrauded auto part businesses from around the nation. U.S. Attorney, Max Wood, says, "It was basically a scheme to avoid payment for bills. A scheme to receive parts through interstate commerce, through commercial mail carriers and then either not pay them or pay them and stop payment on the checks."

Spadine and Hoover will be sentenced in approximately 60 days. They both face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
