Pirro charges foster care supervisors with altering case files for profit
Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro announced Wednesday that six former high-level supervisors with St. Christopher?s in the Bronx are being charged for altering case files for profit.
Dobbs Ferry is the headquarters for St. Christopher?s, which includes a boarding school for troubled kids in the New York foster care system. The six supervisors operated out of a foster care center in the Bronx.
Pirro says the supervisors altered at least 50 case files to report foster care visits that never happened. She says it was part of an effort to get more money out of the city of New York, which has since ended its $89 million contract with St. Christopher's. Two of the workers are from Westchester. Katy Larido, of Scarsdale, and Clarence Brown, of Yonkers, were fired more than a year ago when Westchester and New York City agencies began investigating.
