U.S. Attorney Announces Fraud Charges Against Provider Of Services For Special Needs Preschool Students

Preet Bharara continues to bring the hammer down on corrupt nonprofit leaders. All NYers, including the media, must support and commend the prosecutors and whistleblowers who expose corrupt public officials and nonprofit leaders.

Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Thomas P. DiNapoli, the New York State Comptroller, Richard Condon, the Special Commissioner of Investigation for New York City’s Department of Education, and Brian M. Hickey, the Special Agent-in-Charge of the Northeastern Region of the United States Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General, announced today the arrest of CHEON PARK, owner and executive director of Bilingual SEIT, a federal, New York State, and New York City funded provider of special education services and preschool programs to New York City preschool children. PARK was arrested this afternoon and presented in Manhattan federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald L. Ellis.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said: “Cheon Park allegedly orchestrated multiple schemes to enrich himself by taking funds intended for special needs children and diverting them into his own coffers. As today’s arrest makes clear, we will not tolerate individuals who cheat local, state, and federal government under the guise of helping children, and will do everything in our power to hold them accountable.”
