Special education contractor convicted in $2 million fraud



NEW YORK - The former owner of a Queens-based special education provider, who pleaded guilty to fraud charges earlier this year following a joint investigation

by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District Preet Bharara, was sentenced today to 24 months incarceration

and ordered to pay $2,151,318 in restitution and forfeit another $1,924,318.


“Cheon Park enriched himself and deprived children with physical, developmental and emotional disabilities of the help they need,” DiNapoli said. “His conviction

today stands as a warning for those who attempt to cheat taxpayers and instead use the money for their personal benefit.”


In July 2012, DiNapoli’s office issued an audit of Bilingual SEIT & Preschool Inc. that found Park inappropriately charged New York City’s Department of

Education for salaries, vehicle leases and items such as cosmetics and children’s furniture. There were also a number of questionable issues related to

staff salaries.
