Somerset Fraud
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Somerset-- Somerset detectives say a woman with cerebral palsy stole money from welfare and the Massachusetts cerebral palsy fund...

They say Joan Maclaggan exaggerated the amount of hours her medical assistant worked. In return, detectives say the assistant paid Maclaggan the extra money.

But Maclaggan says her assistant wrote down her own hours and would ask her to sign a blank time sheet."She would yell and scream and have me sign papers. She would get the checks and she'd cash it."

Maclaggan fired the assistant, saying the assistant stole money and medication from her. The assistant has an entirely different story.
