Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that Robert Seung-Bok Lee, age 46, of Baltimore, Maryland, has been indicted by a Merrimack County Grand Jury for allegedly stealing more than $150,000 from Granite State Independent Living (GSIL), a statewide non-profit agency and provider of personal care services to adults with disabilities. Since approximately 2003, and continuing until September of 2011, Lee allegedly submitted weekly time sheets to GSIL that falsely represented that he was receiving services from a caregiver. In reliance on those time sheets, GSIL paid wages to the named caregiver by directly depositing funds into a bank account opened in the caregiver's name. Lee allegedly controlled that account and took the money that was deposited. In turn, GSIL billed the New Hampshire Medicaid Program for the allegedly fraudulent services.
Previous to the grand jury indictment, Lee was arrested on November 10, 2011, at the Manchester Airport on an outstanding warrant for the charged conduct. He was released after satisfying bail conditions that included posting $50,000 cash or surety, waiving extradition, and surrendering his passport. Lee's arraignment on the indictment is scheduled for December 7, 2011, at the Merrimack County Superior Court.
