Foster care supervisors plead not guilty in a Dobbs Ferry court

Six former supervisors at St. Christopher's Inc., a foster care agency based in Dobbs Ferry, were arraigned Thursday for allegedly doctoring children's case files.

All six high-level supervisors pleaded not guilty to forgery and conspiracy. Authorities say the charges stem from dealings at an outreach center in the Bronx. The former supervisors are accused of altering case files in an effort to get money out of the city. The city has since ended its $89 million contract with St. Christopher?s.

Five of the former supervisors were released without bail. Clarence Brown, of Yonkers, is being held on two prior felony convictions. All six are due back in court in January.Related Story:
