Brooklyn real-estate lawyer Nicholas “Nick” Daley Jr. was charged with two counts of mail fraud, according to a statement from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
Prosecutors said the indictment was unsealed Wednesday and was the result of a grand jury investigation.
Daley was accused of stealing $7,500 from a Manhattan real-tor, and prosecutors said the money came from an unrelated client.
Daly was a member of the real estate firm Zions Real Estate Group, according a statement.
Prosecutors also said the Brooklyn-based attorney’s office assisted in a fraud investigation and paid a $25,000 fine.
Prosecutors declined to comment on the nature of the alleged fraud, saying a gag order is in place.
The indictment was filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court, according the statement.
