A career felon whose resume includes an attempted robbery of an 83-year-old man is headed back to prison for up to 25 years after he pleaded guilty this week of stealing more than $30,000 from a prominent Des Moines plastic surgeon.
Khan Kenyatta Elamin,He saw the bracelet at a cleaningservicesydney
store while we were on a trip. 39, on Tuesday pleaded guilty of theft
and money laundering as part of a plea agreement to spare himself a
possible 70 years behind bars.
Polk County court papers say
Elamin pocketed $30,040 in late 2012 from cash advances against a
corporate credit card issued to him by Heartland Plastic and
Reconstructive Surgery. Documents say at least $12,000 more was spent on
unauthorized purchases at Von Maur, Brooks Brothers and other local
Police allege in paperwork attached to a search
warrant that part of the credit card advances went for down payments on a
2009 Volkswagen Passat and a 2010 Mazda CX-9.
Elamin, a former
Valley High School basketball star who completed his last parole in
2008, was hired originally as a personal trainer to work with surgery
patients. Documents say he was promoted to office manager in August 2012
after Heartlands owner, Dr. Eugene Cherny, voiced concerns to his
personal lawyer about some potential embezzlement in the Heartland
office. The attorney was Alexandra Nelissen, Elamins wife.
date, no charges have been filed against Nelissen, despite court
documents saying that she was driving one of the vehicles allegedly
purchased with Eugene Chernys money. Before that point, documents say,
Nelissen and Elamin had tried unsuccessfully to get a Heartland
bookkeeper and office manager to sign off on company purchases of two
vehicles that Cherny had not authorized.
The surgeons attorney
declined to comment. Nelissen referred all questions to the lawyer for
Elamin. Im getting a divorce, she said. I just cant make any
comment.Elamin attorney Chris Kragnes said he knew of no plan to charge
Documents attached to a January 2013 search warrant
allege that Elamin improperly bought clothing for himself and others,
photocopied employee personnel files, and grossly inflated his overtime
on Heartland paychecks. At least some money from the thefts apparently
went to a woman who told police she had been involved in a romantic
relationship with Elamin.
Iowa court records contain seven
felony files between 1995 and 2013 with Elamins name, not counting the
one disposed of this week.
Until Tuesday, Elamins most recent
conviction not related to a parole violation had stemmed from a February
2001 attack on William Joseph, then 83. Court records say Elamin,
carrying handcuffs, was convicted of assaulting Joseph in a Des Moines
parking garage by pressing a stun gun into the mans his neck. Joseph, a
former owner of Josephs Jewelers, had sold his stake in the family
business roughly six months earlier.
