Ahern Pleads Guilty to Phoney Bus Invoices

In an announcement yesterday, Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty said that 60-year-old William Ahern, of Armonk New York and owner of A Plus Transportation, has pled guilty to charges that in 2014 and 2015 he ran a fake bus route and billed the Yonkers school system thousands of dollars. As part of his plea, he will pay restitution of over $179, 203 at his sentencing. McCarty said that Ahern, working in concert with Transportation Supervisor for the city of Yonkers, and co-defendant, 54-year-old Anna Sollozzo stole $313,825 from the City of Yonkers for bus services that were never provided to the Nepperhan Community Center. Ahern would create a false invoice and Sollozzo would approve them for payment. Ahern then deposited money into Sollozzo’s account totaling $107,250. Sentencing for Ahern will be February 16. He faces a maximum of 15 years in prison. Sollozzo was sentenced in June 2016 to two to six years in state prison.
