Sale of Sujata "Sue" Sachdeva's possessions on April 21-22, 2012
On April 20, By mandate of the U.S. Attorney, Mequon consignment store Ivana's Trunk will sell off the remainder of Sujata "Sue" Sachdeva's possessions. In November of 2010, Sachdeva, the former vice president of finance for Milwaukee's Koss Corporation, received an 11 year sentence for embezzling $34 million from the company. Items up for sale are very high-end luxury items including: housewares, china, crystal, sterling silver, decorator items, linens, shoes, clothing, accessories, luggage, electronics, figurines, and art. Many of the items to be sold are still in their original packaging.
Sale is NOT at Ivana's Trunk. The sale will be at 1501-1511 W. Market, Mequon, WI. MC/Visa/Discover accepted. 5% surcharge.
Sachdeva's attorneys argued she embezzled the money as a way to pay for irrational shopping caused by mental illness. Prosecutors did not dispute Sachdeva likely suffered from bipolar disorder and compulsive shopping. But they said, "it is an explanation, but not an excuse." Sachdeva never even took the tags off of many of the items and had to rent storage spaces because she couldn't fit everything she bought into her house. Much of the luxury items offered at the Ivana's Trunk sale were recovered by US Marshals from those storage spaces.
On April 5, 2012, Adam Burback (age 29), of Milwaukee, was sentenced in federal court by United States District Judge Rudolph T. Randa to six months in prison plus one year of supervised release. Burback previously pleaded guilty to removing and concealing property that was subject to forfeiture to the United States in connection with the earlier prosecution of Sujata Sachdeva.
As part of his plea agreement, Burback turned over any and all property obtained directly or indirectly from Ms. Sachdeva, including any property removed from Sachdeva's home. This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecution was handled by Assistant United States Attorney Matthew L. Jacobs.
