Christopher Bunn, 49, of Queens was sentenced today for concealing the death of his father for the purpose of stealing his pension, reports State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.

“This case is a warning to anyone attempting to steal state pension funds,” DiNapoli said. “We are tracking you and you will be prosecuted. I thank District Attorney Brown and the Social Security Inspector General for their partnership with us in rooting out pension fraud.”

Bunn pleaded guilty in October to grand larceny in the third degree, a Class D felony, and petit larceny. He was sentenced to time served and full restitution, which he paid today in Queens County Supreme Court.

Since taking office in 2007, DiNapoli has committed to fighting public corruption and fraud and encourages the public to help fight fraud and abuse.
