Roberts is accused of falsely stating on her travel claims that her primary place of work was the Okfuskee County DHS center in Okemah, even though she did not have an office there and did not supervise anyone in that county.
She then was reimbursed for her travel between Okemah and Shawnee, according to the DHS investigator.
Roberts acted under the guidance of Wilson and Winn approved the travel claims, the investigator reported.
Wilson denied wrongdoing during the investigation. He told the investigator he directed Roberts to maintain an office — a place to hang her hat — at the DHS building in Okfuskee County, according to the court affidavit.
“Bill said if she didn't maintain an office it wasn't his fault as he didn't go check up on her to see if she was following the directive,” the investigator reported. “Bill said, ‘If I was her I would have went there every morning and checked my email before going to Shawnee.'”
The DHS spokeswoman said, “The DHS office of inspector general was tipped off to this situation and conducted the internal investigation. The … findings were turned over to the local district attorney. The DA agreed with us about the seriousness of the alleged offenses and filed the felony charges.”
