Louisville Daycare Owner/Operator Guilty Of Fraud In Seeking Child Care Payments From Kentucky Agency

Lottie Carisa Burgos, former owner of ABC Village Daycare, falsified daycare attendance figures and qualifications of daycare workers

Agreed to pay over $1.4 million in restitution

LOUISVILLE, Ky. –United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr. announced today the guilty plea of a former Louisville daycare owner to charges of wire fraud and money laundering and an agreement by the defendant to pay $1,424,929.00 in restitution to the victim agency.

Lottie Carisa Burgos, the former owner and operator of ABC Village Daycare, pleaded guilty in United States District Court, before District Judge Greg N. Stivers, to 18 counts of an indictment returned by a federal grand jury on July 16, 2014.

“In committing this fraud, Ms. Burgos not only took taxpayer money intended to assist economically disadvantaged parents with childcare costs, but also placed infants and toddlers in harm’s way,” stated United States Attorney John Kuhn. “With this prosecution, we are protecting children and recovering stolen taxpayer money. I thank the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their work on this case.”

Burgos operated ABC Village Daycare at two locations, 1801 West Market Street, Louisville, Kentucky, and 2823 7th Street Road, Louisville, Kentucky. According to the plea agreement, Burgos or others acting at her direction falsified a wide range of information which was a condition of payment for child care services from Kentucky’s Department for Community Based Services. The Department for Community Based Services provides child care benefits to low-income working parents and guardians. Burgos or others acting at her direction falsified the following information: high school diplomas which are a requirement of child care staff with supervisory authority over minors; negative tuberculosis tests and CPR certificates of ABC Village Daycare employees; the employment status of parents; the number of children who attended the daycare centers; and the number of days children attended the daycare centers.

Further, Burgos committed wire fraud on occasions ranging from January 1, 2011, through March 31, 2013. The fraud is associated with payments from the Kentucky Department for Community Based Services totaling $275,576. The total loss was $1,424,929.00.

Burgos also pleaded guilty to six counts of money laundering. Burgos engaged in various financial transactions with money derived from her wire-fraud scheme on six different occasions ranging from September 2011 through May 2012.

Burgos faces a maximum sentence of 300 years in prison, a maximum fine of $4,500,000, and up to 3 years of supervised release. Sentencing is scheduled before Judge Stivers on June 9, 2016, in Louisville.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David Weiser and was investigated by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
