Levy made $561,927 in unauthorized charges to one customer's credit card over a two year period, then misled investigators as they looked into the charges in 2011, according to signed court documents. Sentencing in the case was originally slated for July 20, but it was rescheduled earlier this week to Sept. 6 by U.S. District Court Judge Patti Saris, according to court filings.
