Press Release

Forgery of Timesheets Lead to Criminal Charges

3/4/2019

On February 26th, 2019 the Special Investigative Unit of RJN Investigations was notified of charges being filed as a result of a documented referral. In this case, the claimant was employed for a Caregiver for the Department of Social Services. The claimant was assigned to her client and was terminated on her second day of assignment by the client and only worked a total of 3 hours. After being terminated, the claimant continued to submit timecards alleging she was working for the client for another 470 hours between June 1st, 2016 through October 15th, 2016. Furthermore, it was determine based on a review of the RJN SIU that the claimant was also forging her client’s signatures on the timesheets. Based RJN SIU’s referral to the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office, a criminal investigator was assigned to conduct an interview of the claimant. During this interview, the claimant admitted to falsifying her timesheets as well as filing the false Workers Compensation Injury claim alleging to have sustained a cumulative trauma injury to her back, neck and nervous systems/psyche due to work duties through 10/31/16. Because admission to guilt does not eliminate a criminal filing, the claimant was subsequently charged with 3 counts of 1871.4(A)(1), 487(B)(3) {Grand Theft} and 470(D){Forgery}. A warrant was issued, and the claimant turned herself into the authorities and is scheduled to be arraigned on March 14th, 2019 where she will formally enter a plea.
