A previous Tesla representative was prosecuted by a government stupendous jury Thursday for supposedly stealing $9.3 million from Elon Musk’s electric vehicle organization.
The previous representative, Salil Parulekar, started working at Tesla in 2013, as indicated by a LinkedIn page that shares his name. Most as of late, he filled in as an administrator at Tesla’s worldwide supply administration gathering, where he supervised the organization’s associations with providers.
As per the prosecution, Parulekar, 32, adulterated solicitations, made deceitful record reports, and imitated provider workers with the end goal to steal millions somewhere in the range of 2016 and 2017.
Parulekar supposedly diverted installments planned for Hota Industrial Manufacturing, a Tesla provider, to a record for Schwabische Huttenwerke Automotive, a provider with which Tesla never again worked. By mimicking a Hota representative, the prosecution states Parulekar driven Tesla’s records payable division to switch the ledger data for these two organizations.
He faces nine tallies of wire misrepresentation and one tally of disturbed wholesale fraud. The greatest sentence for each tally of wire extortion is 20 years detainment and a $250,000 fine, while the most extreme sentence for data fraud is two years detainment and a $250,000 fine.
