Do you guys remember the sordid tale of one Christopher M. Green, formerly employed by Crowe Horwath in Columbus, OH? No? Allow me to refresh your memory (I can totally understand why you may have blocked it out):
Green is accused of exposing and touching himself in front of a 17-year-old girl Monday morning.
According to police documents, Green offered the girl several dollars to “touch him” or watch him perform a sex act on himself.
The teen said Green then exposed and touched himself in front of her.
The teen told WBNS-10TV this is not the first time the man had committed this act.
“This happens every day,” the teen said. “He’s out here. He’ll be like, ‘Come on, touch it for a buck. Come on $2, $5,’ and I’ll be like, ‘No.'”
We’ve written plenty about creepy accountants and CPAs over the years, so much so that it’s not always easy to keep tabs on the outcome of their criminal cases. But in sitting around today thinking to myself “man, I wish MSNBC still ran marathons of To Catch a Predator on Sunday nights,” I thought we should look this guy up. What happened to his case?
Glad you asked!
Minutes from the Ohio Board of Accountancy meeting, held February 21, 2014 show he is no longer licensed as a CPA in the state of Ohio.
FORMAL HEARING: CHRISTOPHER M. GREEN
Mr. Fay opened a disciplinary hearing at 11:52 a.m. pursuant to Chapter 119 of the Revised Code. The Board charged Mr. Green with 4701.16(A)(5), of the Revised Code, concerning conviction of a felony under the laws of any state or of the United States. Representing Mr. Green, was counsel, Rasheeda Z. Kahn.
Ms. Damasar introduced State’s Exhibit(s) A, 1 through 10 and B, 1 through 6. Ms. Kahn addressed Mr. Green, as well as the Board and was asked questions by the Board.
The Board admitted into evidence all exhibits. Mr. Fay concluded the hearing.
DISCIPLINARY HEARING: CHRISTOPHER M. GREEN
Upon motion by Mr. Carroll, seconded by Mr. Gero, the Board voted to revoke the CPA certificate of Christopher M. Green, and Mr. Green may not apply for reinstatement until completion of all terms and conditions imposed by the Franklin County Criminal Division, Community Control.
Motion carried 9-0 on a roll call vote
Per court records, he is subject to 2 years supervision by the Community Control program as a sex offender. He is not allowed contact with the victim, nor can he re-offend during that time. A third class felony charge of Compelling Prostitution (for a “buck”?) was dropped and Green pleaded guilty to a fifth class felony charge of Disseminating Matter Harmful to Juveniles.
According to letters written to the court, Green is in recovery from a sex addiction with the support of his wife and parents. There is mention of him finding work in an accounting firm after his arrest but we don’t know which firm, nor do we know if the Board’s decision to revoke his CPA license had any impact on that position.
Consider yourself caught up.
