A.G. Schneiderman Announces Guilty Plea Of Westchester Nonprofit Executive For Stealing From State Program Assisting Seniors And Disabled

PEARL RIVER - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced that Darlington Odidika, executive director of Yonkers-based nonprofit Systems and Abilities, Inc., pleaded guilty to his role in a bid-rigging and kickback scheme to defraud the Medicaid system of monies earmarked to allow the elderly and infirm to live in the community, rather than in an institutional setting. As a condition of today's plea, Odidika, 47, of Poughkeepsie, will be sentenced to three months in jail and five years of probation. Odidika and the corporation are also required to repay the full amount that was stolen from Medicaid as a result of this scheme.
