More DCF Follies
A former CEO of a private home healthcare service was arrested today on charges of public-assistance fraud.Did DCF fail to do a background check on Ms. Dokun or did they accept her request for public assistance based just on her skin color?
Agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Titilayo Idowu Dokun, 43, who headed Capital City Area Care.
Investigators say Dokun filed for and received public assistance in the form of food stamps and Medicaid services, said Phil Kiracofe, FDLE spokesman.
From October 2004 through November 2006,Kiracofe said Dokun filed for assistance to the Department of Children and Families claiming financial need. During periodic certification interviews she neglected to report her income as CEO of $339,409 during the time she was receiving public assistance, Kiracofe said.
Investigators say Dokun received $11,518 in Medicaid services and food stamps.
