NEWS / Indictment Returned Against Former Danbury Hospital CFO

David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Hartford returned an indictment today charging WILLIAM ROE, 56, of Wilton, with one count of wire fraud and two counts of interstate transportation of stolen moneys.

According to the indictment, ROE was employed by Catholic Healthcare Partners (“CHP”), a not-for-profit health system that operated St. Rita’s Hospital in Lima, Ohio; and by Danbury Hospital in Danbury, Connecticut, as a senior vice president and chief financial officer. He also is the registered owner of a company called Cycle Software Solutions, located in Archbald, Pennsylvania. Between approximately July 2008 and July 2010, ROE is alleged to have defrauded both CHP and Danbury Hospital of more than $150,000 by submitting false invoices from Cycle Software Solutions to Danbury Hospital and CHP for software and services that were never provided, and obtaining payment on those invoices.

If convicted, ROE faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years and a fine of up to $1 million on the wire fraud count, and a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count of interstate transportation of stolen moneys.

On August 17, 2010, ROE was arrested on a federal criminal complaint stemming from this alleged fraud scheme. Following his arrest, he appeared before United States Magistrate Judge Holly B. Fitzsimmons in Bridgeport and was released on a $100,000 bond under conditions including that he have no contact with anyone affiliated with Danbury Hospital and that he not travel outside of the state of Connecticut without the prior approval of the United States Probation Office. Upon receiving information that ROE allegedly violated conditions of his release, the government filed a motion requesting that the court revoke ROE’s bond. On August 20, 2010, ROE was arrested in Pennsylvania.

ROE is detained pending a hearing before Judge Fitzsimmons that is scheduled for September 7.

U.S. Attorney Fein stressed that an indictment is not evidence of guilt. Charges are only allegations, and each defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

This matter is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Rahul Kale.
