Espada making headlines

January 19, 2012

Espada allegedly submitted a document to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that falsely claimed his salary of $246,750 had been reduced to $185,063 between February 2009 and January 2010, according to papers unsealed in Brooklyn Federal Court.

The superceding indictment also charges Espada with under-reporting the profits of a janitorial company he controlled that had a contract with the non-profit Bronx health clinic.

Espada and his son Pedro G. Espada were charged in January 2011 with using more than $500,000 from the Soundview Health Care Network for personal expenses, including tickets to Broadway shows and sporting events, dinners and a luxury car. They are also charged with tax evasion.
