The former GVA Williams Midtown administrative assistant who was convicted of stealing $3 million from executive Andrew Roos in 2008, was denied parole earlier this month, the New York Observer reported.

Agnes Dickinson, now 59, will continue her 13-year sentence at Bayview Correctional Facility in Manhattan, according to the New York State Department of Corrections, because she remains a threat. Dickinson was found guilty of grand larceny, forgery and money laundering, according to the Observer. She began serving time in 2008.

Dickinson used money she stole from Roos, now a vice chairman at Colliers International, to purchase a home in West Palm Beach, Florida among other things. Roos’ clients include the United Nations, the Xerox Corporation and the law firm Holland + Knight, the Observer said.

Tanya Apparicio, who prosecuted Dickinson’s case, declined to comment. [NYO]
