Subject: Hands in the child support cookie jar

The child support enforcement bureaucracy is rife with embezzlement and
corruption.  The bureaucracy is so big, and so much cash changes hands,
that there is bound to be significant problems with greed, extortion and
embezzlement.

A couple of years ago, a Philadelphia child support caseworker as convicted for stealing more than $8,000 in cash from child support payors.  The payors were being jailed and were arguing that they'd paid in cash and showed receipts.  It is believed that more than 1 person was involved in stealing child support payments.

There are stories from around the country about this.  A clerk in NJ was
convicted of embezzling over $40,000 in all types of funds, including child
support payments.

Hearing set to allow plea change

By Jim Gaines, jgaines@bgdailynews.com -- 270-783-3242

Tuesday, January 18, 2005

Former Warren County Attorney Mike Caudill's hearing to change his plea on  federal charges to guilty was set in a quick phone conversation with U.S. District Judge Thomas Russell in Paducah this morning.
Caudill, facing a federal embezzlement charge as well as two state theft
charges, was represented by his attorney and longtime friend, local lawyer
David Broderick.

"Mr. Caudill's hearing on a change of plea is going to be Feb. 8 at 12
o'clock," Broderick said today.

Caudill served as county attorney for 25 years, but resigned April 1.
Beginning in February 2004, the Kentucky Attorney General's Office Public
Corruption Unit, in conjunction with local police agencies, searched
Caudill's office three times while investigating allegations of misuse of
funds.

He resigned his law license under terms of permanent disbarment, and
agreed to change his pleas to guilty in return for a recommended sentence.

The federal government's offer to settle, made last fall, specifies one
count of embezzling money "belonging to the United States or under a
program contracted by the United States."

Caudill, as county attorney, contracted to perform child-support
collection work for the state Cabinet for Health and Family Services. He
received about $4,000 a month from January 2001 through March 2004 for
time allegedly worked on child support cases ¬ but was submitting false
invoices for his time, and took more than $15,000 for work he didn't do,
 according to James Vines, acting U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.

The crime is federal because Caudill was paid with federal funds channeled
through the state.

The charge carries a recommended sentence of 10 to 16 months in prison,
but the final decision is up to federal district court.

Caudill would have to serve at least half the minimum term of
imprisonment, not including a halfway house, home detention or community  confinement. Federal prosecutors agreed not to oppose Caudill's request to  be in the closest prison to Bowling Green that his security level allows.

He agreed to pay $15,000 restitution to CHFS child support, $138.88 per
month for nine years.

The deal contains no agreement on fines and costs. The class C felony can
carry a fine up to $250,000 and no more than three years of supervised
release.

Another plea deal from November dealt with two state counts of theft by
unlawful taking over $300, a class D felony that carries a one- to
five-year sentence.

The first count alleges that between July 1, 2002, and Nov. 13, 2003,
Caudill collected fees for bad checks as county attorney, depositing them  in an office account, and transferred $56,100 from the bad-check account into his private business checking account.

The second state count dealt with a November 2000 personal-injury lawsuit  in which Caudill represented Wallace Charles Meeks of Smiths Grove as a private attorney. As part of that case's settlement, Caudill put $8,000 in  escrow to pay liens by Medicare and Anthem Insurance Co.

Between June 20, 2003, and Nov. 6, 2003, he transferred that money in four  increments into his business checking account, the plea deal states.

Caudill agreed to serve a one-year sentence on each count. The sentences
will run concurrently and with his federal sentence on embezzlement charges.

He will be required to repay $56,100 to Warren County Fiscal Court, plus
any further money found to be missing from the county attorney's
delinquent-tax payment account.

Caudill will pay $300 per month until he sells any property in which he
has an interest. That money will go first to the state.

After a hearing Dec. 8 in Warren Circuit Court at which the signed plea
agreement was presented, Caudill was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond.

Caudill is still recuperating from an Oct. 14 stroke, and is trying to
strengthen himself enough to undergo heart surgery, according to Broderick.

The hearing Feb. 8 will finalize Caudill's federal plea agreement, he said.
"And then we'll wait for sentencing in both courts," Broderick said.
Sentencing dates will be set after the Feb. 8 hearing, he said.

Child Support Issues / CSEA TV Report
« on: Dec 07, 2004, 10:48:21 AM »
From: Chad Kennedy [mailto:ckennedy4@w...]

I have to say that I was very disappointed in the story on channel 7 news(WHIO TV Dayton, Ohio).

First, it was reported as a call into waste busters, which it was not. It was a response email to the deadbeat story they aired. Second, they aired about 15 seconds of a 15 minute conversation and the only thing they had me saying on behalf of noncustodial parents was that when a man gets into arrears they should ask why. And third, they aired the remaining majority of the story about a lady who had been after her ex for 17 years and was behind $45,000 complete with showing his picture and her opinion that they should get even tougher.

Jim Otte stated father's would take their fight to Columbus next year when Ohio considers changes and Cheryl McHenery ended with how there is X billion dollars owed by noncustodial parents.

I apologize for the let down as I had been approached by many after seeing the promising advertisements that perhaps a fraction of our issues would be broadcast. I warned with caution that we don't know how the story will be framed when it finally airs. We are, however, used to this disappointment like Don Hubin being told his minority report would not be included in the final recommendations from the guideline council to the legislature.

 There are those that do put out the entire story, like the newspaper I recently said would publish my editorial in it's entirety and who wants to do a follow-up story on the facts. I hope that everyone shares their disappointment with channel 7 by emailing Jim Otte and letting him know where you have been. Cc: Otte, Jim (CBI-Dayton); 7online@w...
Subject: Channel 7 Report


I have my own questions like, Jim:

1. Where was the fact that the recommendations by the council include a 23-1117% increase in support (you had a picture of the report)?

2. Why are noncustodial parents held to the unattainable standard of nevergetting sick, never becoming disabled, and never losing a job in a poor economy?

3. Why is the noncustodial parent representative's minority report not being included in the final recommendations like it was in the two councils prior (you had a picture of this report, too)?

4. Why can they take 50% of a payers gross pay and still expect him to live (actually 65% or 55% if you have subsequent children)?

5. Why they aren't looking at the flaws in the income shares model when there is more appropriate models like cost shares?

6. Why is paternity fraud condoned OR kids treated unequally in and out of an order OR judges not granting deviations when noncustodial parents request it?

7. Why are we using the term deadbeat when the largest federally funded study into the matter found they don't exist in significant numbers (you had a picture of the book)?

8. Why are we not looking at the fact that CSEA is a revenue producing entity of the state so it behooves them to make awards as high and as long as they can?

9. Why is Ohio a deadbeat state that is holding over $33,000,000 in undistributed child support that has already been paid?

10. Why, when a third of noncustodial parents reside with custodial parents, are we condoning practices that are hurting the very kids the CSEA is supposed to be helping by letting these kids watch their stepparents being taken from their home in handcuffs?

11. Why aren't we encouraging equal parenting when research has shown that involved parents support their children?

 I have lots of questions especially since I know all of these facts were laid out for Mr. Otte when he came to my home and these are the facts that sit at the heart of the problem.

Things, like I said, will get worse under the current more aggressive policies CSEA is adopting. Like I also said, you can invent 7 new ways to squeeze a turnip but you will still not get blood. Mr. Galluzo and Daufel were here when this interview took place and can attest to the fact that these issues were laid out and probably share my amazement at this being the best reporting that could be done.

Mr. Otte, when and if you reply, please "reply all" to share your feedback with everyone so that we might understand why the story was aired in the manner it was. For those that didn't see it, I'm in the process of trying to get the necessary drivers so that the captured video clip can be put on the forum. We all know when these things are fixed, the arrearage problem will take care of itself.

All I can say, Mr. Otte, is that I hope you never have to experience these things first hand. We'll certainly be in touch when things move to the legislature, or when channel 7 airs bent point of views, but will certainly proceed with caution.

Please forward this email to anyone you know in the channel 7 viewing area.

Child Support Issues / RE: Can DH change careers?
« on: Oct 04, 2004, 11:31:15 AM »
In Ohio if there is a 15% decrease the NCP can go back and get a review for CS.

However if she is making less because of disability this throws the whole calculation up for grabs.

Some states I understand if you have the child for 35% of the time or more your CS is weighted accordingly.  Since Mom is sick try to have the children stay with you more.  It’s a Win-Win situation.  You get more time with your children and in the future it may reduce your CS payment.  

In other words you can spend YOUR money on the children instead of the CP getting a blank check and spending the money as she wishes.  Remember there is NO accountable for how CS is spent.

Read this sites info about CS.

Good luck!!

Child Support Issues / RE: cs is taking 90% of income
« on: Sep 24, 2004, 12:40:09 PM »
First purrrfectgirl is correct about our OHIO CSEA laws.

Second, normally the state you work in collects CS.

But wait one second,, as crappy as OHIO CSEA is I understand CA is worse.

Anyway,, no matter what state you are in only 50-60% may be taken out in deductions.  Knowing what deductions are counted towards that 50-60% is important.  (the % are a guess-ta-ment)

Knowledge is power.  Start learning.

Dear Socrateaser / School enrollment
« on: Jun 01, 2006, 07:00:28 PM »
I am a father who is an NCP in OHIO.

Son currently goes to a private school for Kindergarten.

Mom the residential enrolled son in Private school for Kindergarten. Mom told me a few months before Kindergarten started he was not going to the local public school but would be going to a private school for kindergarten.

Next week kindergarten ends so I went to administration and asked if son was enrolled for First grade.

The Director of Admissions said he could not revile that information.

Is that true?  He can’t tell me if our son is enrolled in First grade?

Dear Socrateaser / RE: What if #2 ??????
« on: Jul 20, 2005, 11:49:41 AM »
Ok so eX Moved 25 miles to a different county and did not tell me or submit  Move away forms.

NEW:

When eX bought her house she transferred it to a Revocable Trust.

No big deal,,, but wait.  eX’s divorce attorneys firm has done all of eX’s legal stuff in the past and I am sure did eX’s Revocable Trust.

Therefore eX divorce attorney knew about the move and the requirement for eX to file a “Custodial Parent Relocation” form.

Does the court care if eX new about the relocation form and did not file it?  What obligation does eX divorce attorney have to eX Filing?

Dear Socrateaser / What if??????
« on: Jul 12, 2005, 04:44:30 PM »
[em]How do you feel this approach would work?[/em]

Go back to court and submit a “Shared Parenting” plain.  At this point opposing counsel they would have to explain why eX moved and why she did NOT give proper notice.

From there I would argue that eX knows I have been working towards shared parenting and is being vindictive by sending son to kindergarten and moving son 25 miles to another county.
