Eiseman & Landsman v. State
Ohio Court of Appeals
1932 WL 1699 (1932)
Eiseman and Landsman, using aliases, sought to convince Sarah Silverberg to take her money out of Cleveland banks and give her money to them to invest in real estate projects. Eiseman and Landsman induced Silverberg to withdraw approximately $22,000 from various Cleveland banks and gave her a briefcase in which to put the money. Landsman went to Silverberg’s home the next day and left with the money. After obtaining possession of Silverberg’s money, Eiseman and Landsman checked into a hotel in Detroit. Some of Silverberg’s money was used to purchase a diamond ring, and the rest was exchanged for smaller bills and placed in a safety-deposit box in Detroit. Eiseman and Landsman were indicted for larceny. Some evidence indicated that Landsman took the money without Silverberg’s consent and left paper and glass in the briefcase to deceive anyone who lifted the briefcase into believing that it still contained the money. Some of Silverberg’s testimony indicated that Silverberg voluntarily gave custody of the money to Landsman. Eiseman and Landsman were convicted and argued on appeal that the evidence did not establish that they committed larceny.
