NEW YORK — Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, former vice president of product development at Tiffany & Co., pled guilty in New York federal court on Friday to stealing more than $2.1 million worth of jewelry from the upscale jeweler.
Arrested on July 2 at her home in Darien, Conn., Lederhaas-Okun, 46, faces up to 46 months in prison after agreeing to plead guilty to one count of interstate transportation of stolen property. This offense normally carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Initially, she had also been charged with one count of wire fraud, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in jail, but that charge was not mentioned in the plea agreement.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
