The Beaver Countian has obtained a copy of the case file for the County Detectives Bureau’s criminal investigation into Treasurer Connie Javens’ unilateral withdrawal of funds from county accounts for Friendship Ridge.

The 47-page file contains the investigating detective’s reports of interviews conducted of county officials, including interviews of the then-Board of Commissioners, Financial Administrator, Solicitor, Controller, and Treasurer Connie Javens. Also included is an investigative summary written by county detectives and a “Decision Not To Prosecute” memo written by District Attorney David Lozier.

The Beaver Countian submitted a formal Right-to-Know request seeking the documents shortly after the District Attorney’s Office announced they would not be filing criminal charges against Treasurer Connie Javens as a result of their investigation. Although the public release of investigative reports can not be compelled under Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law, District Attorney Lozier exercised his discretionary authority and released the file in full to the Beaver Countian.

District Attorney David Lozier’s four page summary — as transcribed into digital format by the Beaver Countian — is being published below in its entirety, followed by scans made by the Beaver Countian of the remainder of the case file as released by the District Attorney’s Office.

Memo

TO: Connie Javens Investigative File
Beaver County Detective Bureau File No. 15-115

FR: David J Lozier, Esq.

RE: Decision Not To Prosecute

I concur with Det. Staub’s recommendation. I discussed this matter with my senior ADA staff and with the exception of ADA Torrence there is agreement that the matter should not be prosecuted. ADA Torrence sees a technical violation of the county code although none of the funds were county funds at the time of the transfer. It is my policy never to file a criminal charge for the sole purpose of purpose of punishment by charging. While the Feds often charge to force a plea, I refuse to do that. If there is no likelihood of a successful jury verdict I will not charge. We are not in the business of forcing pleas but only in pursuing cases that can be ethically taken to a jury. For the reasons set forth below this case cannot succeed in front of a jury. Therefore I cannot ethically prosecute no matter how easy and popular the decision would be to do so.

1. Three ILC’s were negotiated by Commissioners Amadio, Spanik, and Nichols, Chief of Staff LaValle and Solicitor Askar. These complex contracts were beyond the understanding of all of them and all but Askar admitted to not having read the contracts or understanding the details. Treasurer Javens was not in the negotiating team and had no knowledge of the details or reasons for the transfers.

2. The ILC’s put Friendship Ridge under the management of Comprehensive prior to the final closing. Comprehensive had been providing the care and services, was being paid by the carriers and federal agencies, and was being paid for that care.

3. The final closing document, ILC Section 4.2 (m) transferred ownership of the funds in the account on the date of transfer to Comprehensive (they had been providing the care that thus the payments were benefits and reimbursement for the period of their care), assigned ownership of all future funds coming into the accounts to Comprehensive (they would be providing the care and thus all payments after closing would be reimbursed for the period of their care), and stated that the county held any funds in the accounts “in trust” for Comprehensive. The county had no claim of ownership to any funds passing through the accounts. Although the accounts were public, meaning they were county accounts under the county code, there could be no criminal charge for misappropriation, theft or misapplication of public funds or property because the county had no claim of ownership.

4. Interviews of all personnel involved in negotiating the ILC’s made it clear that the commissioners, solicitor, chief of staff and controller’s personnel, assumed that Treasurer Javens would convert the accounts to “in and out” or “pass through” accounts. This would mean that those who negotiated the agreements, those who gave Treasurer Javens the task of disbursing the funds to Comprehensive, intended for her to set up a process so that the transfers would happen automatically. Upon receipt of the funds, the funds would jump from the county account to the Comprehensive account with no signature or human intervention at all.

5. Interviews of all personnel involved in negotiating the ILC’s made it clear that the commissioners, solicitor, chief of staff and controller’s personnel agreed that the funds were owned and/or due and owing to Comprehensive, they consented to the transfers, they just complained of the process she used.

6. I find it disingenuous at least that any county official who knew the contract better than Treasurer Javens, negotiated the contract, directed her to make the disbursements, consented to the transfers, knew the transfers were happening, and even assumed she would do it by automatic pass-through — would then claim she had violated the public trust when she interjected her signature when they had envisioned pass-through accounts with no signature at all.

7. Responsibility for the transfers was given to Treasurer Javens and Chief of Staff LaValle because theirs were the only signatures left on the signature cards. Before Javens made the subject $275,000 transfer, the Commissioners, Solicitor and Controller changed the signature cards from two-signature cards (accounts requiring two signatures) to one-signature cards (accounts requiring only one signature), and then allowed officers of Comprehensive to be signators on several of the accounts.

8. Again, I find it disingenuous at least that any county official who knew the contract better than Treasurer Javens, negotiated the contract, directed her to make the disbursements, consented to the transfers, knew the transfers were happening, even assumed she would do it by automatic pass-through — would then claim she had violated the public trust when she used her signature when they had changed the cards to make it possible for Treasurer Javens, and even Comprehensive’s own personnel, to make the transfers without normal public processes in place. The single signature authority, and allowing Comprehensive to sign a signature card for a county account, was as offensive to the County Code as anything Treasurer Javens was accused of doing.

9. No jury of twelve would unamimously convict Treasurer Javens of the violation of the County Code, i.e., using her one signature to make transfers rather than the normal county disbursement process, because:

a. Those who negotiated the agreement gave Javens no direction on what they expected and even assumed she was using a different and also improper process (automatic pass through).
b. Those who negotiated the agreement expected her to use a transfer process with even less human intervention (automatic pass through) than the process she chose (single signature authority).
c. Those who negotiated the agreement executed the new signature cards allowing Treasurer Javens to do exactly what she did.
d. Those who negotiated the agreement executed new signature cards allowing Comprehensive Personnel to transfer funds with no county process or supervision at all, so how could Javens be prosecuted for a violation of the process set forth and made possible by the commissioners, controller, and solicitor.
e. Javens never read nor understood the agreement, and every county official interviewed (except Solicitor Askar) agreed they had not read or understood the whole agreement either.
f. Those who negotiated the agreement consented to the transfers, and clearly did not really care about the form.
g. No county funds were transferred, misplaced, misappropriated, or misdirected.
h. A jury trial based on these facts and these defenses is doomed.

10. Prosecution of Javens, or Javens and LaValle, would be correctly seen as selective prosecution. Commissioners Amadio, Spanik and Nichols; Solicitor Askar, Chief of Staff LaValle, Controller Rossi, Deputy Controller Calhoon, and then-Asst. Controller Luckow, knew the agreements and the purpose of the transfer far better than late-comer Javens, and are responsible for grossly mismanaging the accounts. They set no deadline on when Comprehensive would have its own accounts in place and failed to provide any guidance to Treasurer Javens. Their creation of new signature cards as described above was as egregious as Treasurer Javens’ attempts to carry out the purpose of the contracts. They directed Treasurer Javens to carry out the agreement they had crafted and then turned their back to the process. To prosecute only Treasurer Javens would be unethical, and you cannot prosecute every official whose hands touched this mess of a deal. She would defend herself as a scape goat for county inefficiency and would be correct.

11. The $300,000 Bonus. The original management agreement transferred daily control of Friendship Ridge to Comprehensive. The agreement entitled Comprehensive to either eat its losses, or share 1/2 of any savings its new management brought to Friendship Ridge. $300,000 is an oddly even number for a savings from management a multimillion dollar nursing home. The bonus was paid on the authority of Chief of Staff LaValle with the consent of the Commissioners. When questioned as to how the $300,000 figure was arrived at there were few answers and even fewer documents. Officials agreed that the payment was approved but not where the figure came from. The best answer came from Chief of Staff LaValle who stated that someone provided him with a range, a high and low figure, for the money/costs saved by Comprehensive. Solicitor Askar suggested splitting the numbers and rounding it off. This figure appeared baseless. No document supports how the figure was computed or whether there were any savings at all. The forensic audit questioned the bonus and it is properly the subject of civil litigation.

12. Mystery Deposits. During my personal review of the extensive account records I identified a number of deposits from unknown sources. The account income should have been only reimbursement by insurance companies and Medicare/Medicaid for services rendered, and Social Security benefit payments. The codes for some deposits could not be interpreted as to source. Ricardo Luckow was also asked to provide a list of mystery deposits. We asked banks for help identifying the sources of the deposits and got none. Ultimately, I determined that tracking down each payment source was a waste of our resources and beyond the scope of this investigation. Instead, as these accounts involved the payment and disbursement of federal funds, I discussed this matter, and the entire disbursement scheme, with an auditor from a relevant federal agency and also with personnel from the US Attorney’s Office. I provided no records to any federal investigators because they already had access to everything I had or could ever find about the sources of the accounts and the banking transactions involved. As is typical of federal investigators all you receive is a blank stare, brief not talking, and no commitment to act or not act. Improper funds coming into or through these accounts is best investigated by the feds and it was left in their hands.

13. Corruption Charges. Individuals made claims and innuendo that Treasurer Javens or her family received kickbacks or campaign contributions in exchange for these transfers. I found such allegations baseless and spurious at best. Javens had nothing to do with the Friendship Ridge sale. She only became involved after the fact, after the ink was dry. The transfers discussed above were of money due and owing to Comprehensive. The only issue was the form of the transfers not that Comprehensive was due the funds under scheme set forth in the contracts. Why pay off the Treasurer who was not involved in the negotiating the deal and who was only transferring money to its rightful and legal owner? Individuals making such claims never provided any documentation or detail and had no firsthand knowledge of any impropriety. Treasurer Javens’ campaign accounts were reviewed and nothing related to the sale of Friendship Ridge, or the transfers, was found. There were accusations that several retiring individuals were paid bonuses by Comprehensive and that this was some sort of deal worked out by the Treasurer. Javens had no influence and if she did it was Comprehensive that paid any bonuses, not the County.

14. Finally, some point to contracts which may have been steered to family members of Javens. Again, these would be contracts made by Comprehensive and not the County. If Javens had influence on these contracts being let by a private company there could be no criminal charges as a matter of law. During the course of my investigation two appeal court decisions came down clearly ruling that an elected official can only be charged with “corruption” if they personally and financially benefited. The US Supreme Court dismissed very serious corruption charges against former Gov. McDonnell. The court agreed that he had used his position as governor to help a friend gain sales in a business but as McDonnell did not personally and financially benefit there could be no corruption charge. The same result occurred with the recent decision ordering a new trial on some counts against former State Representative Mike Veon. While he was rightly charged with misusing government resources, he could not be charged with corruption by using his influence to help others if he was not actually and directly paid off. There could be no charge of corruption against Treasurer Javens even if she did use whatever influence she may have had to get Comprehensive to pay a bonus to a third party or to let a contract to a relative. The case law on criminal corruption is no clear, no matter how little sense it makes.

  1. Move along. Nothing to see here folks.
    None of this info means shit because she WILL NOT be charged with ANYTHING!
    Besides, SHE said she IS NOT RUNNING again.
    JP, give up this ghost already, you’re wasting your time.

     
    • Agreed. But this case is nothing more than beating a dead horse to death. It’s over. Done. Finished. Asshole Looser IS NOT going to prosecute her. Time to move on to bigger and better things. Like…….2 mil in the hole? WHY? WHO? WHAT? WTF!
      Connie is old and decrepit, she will die soon, problem solved.

       
  2. Jp in my opinon also, we can show our facts det. Staub is a Monaca boy, Connie is a Monaca grannie. Now, you have a crooked d.a., in less than a year ruined his name because he is truely a coward. The d.a. doesn’t realize his check might not clear because the county is 2 million in the hole from this… . Now, raise taxes and beg for federal aid you morons!!! We the people knew when he took the investigation over from the state ploice this was a cover up. MR. Lozier bank the $170 grand per year in the next 4 years you will need it. As a lawyer you will never make that cash in Beaver County at your own PRACTICE that’s why you took the job in the 1st place. Why because you are terriable seriously!!!! Mr. Benyo please run against this fool!

     
  3. Well we already knew..

    Heard a month ago the DISTRICT ATTORNEY say ” she broke the law, but no crime was committed”

    Now he says he wasn’t going to charge just to plea down, hmmmm

    Why would he want to investigate fellow row officer??? Why not have outside agency do it? How about a detective that didn’t grow up around her ( not that he would do that Timmy good guy) but his mother did live across street past 20 years, from miss javens.

    Ohwell no surprises other than Tony clueless again. What a sham.

     
    • Hey Skeeter, read #10 over carefully. “Rossi, et al directed Javens to carry out the agreement they crafted and then turned their back on the process”. “Rossi, et al knew the agreements and purpose of the transfer far better than late-comer Javens and are responsible for mismanaging the accounts” That says it all! Looks like Rossi cost the county big bucks with his allegations.

       
      • Late-comer baloney! She was on top of this thing from the day Comp Health came in to run the place for the sole purpose of landing that contract for her daughter.

         
  4. So, DA Lozier is some kind of psychic?
    “9. No jury of twelve would unamimously convict Treasurer Javens of the violation of the County Code,”

     
  5. Whatever. Can we find 10-15 more Sandy Egleys to elect next time around? Maybe then the taxpayers will actually get a little bit of respect and honesty from our elected officials. The rest of them are scumbags – flat out.

     
  6. I still wonder why the Treasurer was following procedures in place and getting all required signatures for any withdrawals that stopped in October and she resorted to a single signature (her’s or LaValle’s). The article keeps referring to signature cards. If the cards were changed to only requiring her or LaValle’s signature, then why did the Comptroller raise the red flag about the withdrawals. If she was so innocent, why did she need a lawyer.

     
  7. Jesus Christ couldn’t convince some of you illiterate fucking simpletons from visualizing a crime being committed by this woman. I wonder how your educational background compares to the DA’s.. Get a fucking life, assholes!

     
  8. I have been saying this from the beginning where was Rossi, the Contoller, during all of this mess. Well we know where he was now don’t we. Didn’t even read the contract that would be moving money out of the county’s bank accounts. He and his sidekick Calhoun both need to go. Get someone in that office that can at least read.

     
      • That and showing up at borough council meetings with his buddy Norm Ely to support Norm’s run for Mayor. That town is Aliquippa II. Or maybe he was there to check on the council family members Gary Rossi and Derek Wilson…oh Gary is gone moved out of Aliquippa II. Maybe his hold over the little borough is slipping.

         
  9. Well, that settles that. Not a fan of the treasurer but it’s all on the previous commissioners who apparently didn’t understand or even read the sale contract they signed.

     
  10. Vince LaValle stated that the term “loan” was not the correct term in regards to the 1.2 Million that Comp Health Care requested. He also stated that monies were returned to the County.
    Spin it anyway you want, that is a 0% interest loan of public tax funds in the amount of 1.2 Million Dollars. THAT IS ILLEGAL !!!

     
  11. I notice the one thing detectives didn’t do is dig into the personal finances of any of these shady characters.

     
  12. Wow! This is the longest heartfelt apology I have ever read. And so sincere, oh my! May I suggest a dozen red roses to show eternal love and affection?

    Call off all pending jury trials! The DA already knows who is naughty or nice!

    Next case. Next apology.

    Repeat.

     
  13. The fix was in from the beginning when Looser called off the State Police and then Howdy Doody Staub recommended not to prosecute.

     
  14. This is BASICALLY PLAGIARISM of what her defense ATTORNEY wrote.

    It’s clear COUNTY CODE 4 signatures on county account to remove.

    It’s clear the treasurers responsibility to be the custodian of county accounts and to secure, posses and update ask signature cards.

    Simple terrible investigation. If Connie Javens wasn’t doing anything nefarious, besides not getting permission even with the one signature alleged excuse. WHY OH WHY WOULDN’T she have told her deputy treasurers so they could reconcile accounts give them receipts for the with draws, and give to Vince lavalle in commissioners unit so he could accounts updated and the Controllers office so they can adjust accounts and post financials. No she just went down numerous times alone and did what she thought was right to do.

    What a joke

     
  15. Come on people! What did you expect from a DA that can’t even get a conviction on a slam dunk murder charge?!
    This ass clown is about as useful as used toilet paper!
    Look on the bright side – High school football and the Steelers!!!! YEA!!!!
    SMH!

     
  16. I notice in the interviews with Javens and LaValle they were never asked why they both failed to record the withdrawals with the Controllers Office.

     
  17. Is it true that the Beaver County Detectives Bureau and DA have been contracted to write her memoirs? Sounds like it could make the New York Times Bestseller List of 2017 for political fiction.

     
  18. Connie isn’t the problem, THE COURTHOUSE is the problem. Do you really think that the place will run better with her finally gone but the rest of them still there??? This shit with the withdrawals should have been known and handled after the first time that she did it. How much time spent trying to figure out what happened, let alone the legality of it? NOBODY looked at the statements, looked at the procedure, understood the Comprehensive agreement as to who got what, when and how for months. You wonder what they do over there all day aside from decorating their offices for Steeler and Penguin seasons or put pictures of their grandkids all over their desks.

     
  19. This whole Friendship Ridge – Comp Health Care deal couldn’t have been done better, not even by the Nigerians.

     
  20. Ok, explain this to me as if I were a five year old kid. No one read the contract, Connie didn’t understand the wording or instructions because she did not read the contract. The D.A. doesn’t want to waste his time on this matter (I guess he forgot how to do his job effectively). No one political gained anything from the sale, because family doesn’t count. After at least a decade or more as the County Treasurer, Connie still doesn’t understand about the accounting system. What did I pay for in my taxes years ago? I guess no one is guilty and only the taxpayers will continue to put up with this excrement.

     
  21. It’s Amateur Hour once again in Beaver County. I’m hoping to dump my house on some unsuspecting construction worker who will be one of the “thousands” who will be constructing the new SHELL plant and move out of this county. I’ve also heard that the 11000 workers will actually be less than half of that. Also, the simpletons calling the shots in the Court House are absolute morons. They don’t read the reports but just rubber stamp things. It’s time to drain the swamp. The only way you do that is to make an example and prosecute one of the players. Looser, you missed your chance to be a hero. Friggin Amateurs.

     
      • Not a chance of that happening. Shell is much smarter than that. They could not care less about county politics and they won’t be endangering their business to placate the likes of beaver county nobodies.

         
  22. This is what happens when everyone is there just to collect a paycheck. Millions of dollars being thrown around like it was monopoly money.
    If you want to ask a question that everyone can answer, ask them when payday is.
    Otherwise, nobody knows anything and nothing is done according to those darn rules, who has time to read those silly rules?

     
  23. What kind of idiots enter into a sale of County property and do not read or understand the language of the sale contract? All those involved in this sale are either stupid assholes or liars and should be held responsible! PS – Why do we have an ambulance chaser for our DA?

     
  24. You know who is reading these comments and pressing the Thumbs Down on just about every comment. Instead of wasting your time, best to look in the mirror, are you losing any more of your hair.

     
  25. What is very odd to me is that her 1st and 2nd deputies always do the banking, but not in this case. Very interesting.

     
  26. In twenty plus years of involvement in law enforcement. This maybe the worse written investigation I’ve seen and more so the esteemed District Attorney is beyond showing favoritism in political circles.

    What a shame let a a more qualified, deeper reach with a plethora of resources handle this case and it would be a different result. Seems the point was forgotten on the goal at hand. But then again “we don’t charge to get pleas” the esteemed DISTRICT ATTORNEY quote. Okay then. Didn’t know this was a potential drug case, let that go to trial and add a homicide to boot and lose like you have been. But that’s off point.

    Real joke, kudos to those that attempted to bring to justice the right motive just the wrong time. Change is here, bask in its glory

     
  27. Thank you, John Paul, for publishing these many linked documents. The tedious labor of reading through them leaves me with one obvious conclusion — they never wanted to find anything, from the beginning. The slant, subjectivity and omissions in the writings are embarrassing. As I’ve said before, the perps take care of their own, and they are virtually immune to discovery, charges, court judgements and any kind of accountability.

     
    • In my opinion, this DA, with minimal criminal investigative and criminal trial experience, set the bar high at the beginning, with the criterion being whether sufficient evidence would be found to convince a jury of guilt. The case was prejudged, the findings were judged against that criterion, and the final subjective personal decision was that they did not. This was not a judgement by peers. It was the bias of friends. And the right to a trial by jury, for both the public and accused, be damned. Justice was subverted.

       
  28. Taxpayers Fleeced! After reading this article and reading some of the attachments I cannot believe that these people can walk in the community without a mask. Tony Amadio should be publically flogged and hung up by his heels like Mussolini for his complete incompetence. Who signs a contract you don’t understand? Someone who will not be held accountable. Play dumb. Too bad he’s not playing. IDON”TKNOW Amadio, Asswipe Askar, Queen Connie, Stonewall Loser, Joe Spanik, Dennis Nichols, the entire treasurer’s office and ESPECIALL Moe Rossi, Larry Luckowich & Bumble Calhoun should all be charged under the RICO act. You cannot make this shit up. All the people involved, including the attorneys, accountants, etc either failed or just didn’t give a shit about the taxpayers when unloading the Ridge. The buyer saw a bunch of Beaver hicks and outsmarted them in their eagerness to sell. Anyone that really believes that the Queen is innocent better have their brain scan for signs of life. This was the worst investigation ever undertaken. Never was going to be anyone held accountable. Nobody talks and we all walks!! Our only hope is that some federal investigators are still working on this county out house. It’s overflowing with bullshit. Stonewall should get a Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Too bad he sucks as an attorney. law degree from a cracker jack box. Go back to chasing ambulances. His record to date is abysmal. Can’t win even when he has an air tight case. Imagine all the shit that went on in the court house in the last 30 years unchallenged by our hard hitting investigative crew at the BC End of Times rag. Not a peep there, crickets. great story on the glory days of Beaver this week. Are you f-cking kidding me? The people of this valley can’t get their heads out of their asses and are stuck in the 60’s. Worst part is they poison the youth with their stupidity and old school politics. We deserve the government we voted for. Can’t wait for next election.

     
  29. Don’t forget Slick Vinny LaValle and Ask Bernie Rabik’s complicity in this cluster f-ck. I read every statement and they are pitiful. This county government looks like something you would see in a third world country. Lazy, inept, conniving, conspiring and screwing the taxpayers at every twist. The arrogance and lack of remorse in these statements speak volumes. They’re only pissed because they got caught thanks to great work by JP. In almost every statement they sound like they had a talking point to steer everything away from the Queen. Poor old innocent Queen, just trying to help anyway possible. Did anyone think her involvement was by accident. She saw an opportunity to suck up to Mordy and took the bait and ran with it. Dumb as a fox. As always, all trails lead to the Queen when their is stupidity, ineptness, mismanagement and total lack of scruples. Follow the bread crumbs left behind by FRIENDS AND FAMILY, INC.

     
  30. Queen has a dossier on all of them I bet. The whole damn court house is scared shitless by an old wind bag. Grow some balls guys or remove them from Connie’s safe! Only one to stand up to that old goat is Egley.

     
  31. Taxpayers: Do you think Amadio, Spanik and Nichols and the rest of the I DON’T KNOW NOTHING gang handle their personal finances like they mishandled our tax dollars? This is the f-ck the taxpayer attitude that emanates from that court house. Starts at the top and filters down to all court house FRIENDS AND FAMILY, INC.

     
  32. The portion of his Lozier’s summary is EXACTLY what I have maintained all along: “Commissioners Amadio, Spanik and Nichols; Solicitor Askar, Chief of Staff LaValle, Controller Rossi, Deputy Controller Calhoon, and then-Asst. Controller Luckow, knew the agreements and the purpose of the transfer far better than late-comer Javens, and are responsible for grossly mismanaging the accounts.” Get that peeps – Your Controller and Asst. Controller are responsible for gross mismanagement. Rossi and Luckow bear most of the blame. But go ahead and continue to blame CTJ. Sorry but it’s actually pathetic how your hatred of one person clouds your judgment. No one gives a shit about Torrance. The county has to pay the Feds to reconcile the mess he made.

     
  33. I thought she got locked up a long time ago, cell mate with the asshole Mike Veon, and his druggie son? Just goes to show you, if you want to be a thief and never get into trouble, then by all means please pursue politics

     
  34. Did anyone investigating this fiasco check into the personal bank accounts of any of those involved in the negotiations of the sale of Friendship Ridge or did the DA’s crystal ball deem it unnecessary also?

     
  35. insurancenewsnet.com:

    Friendship Ridge nursing home was in private hands after it was sold in 2014 for $37.6 million — a move that gave the county an infusion of cash and also removed an operation that was losing $21,717 each day when it was owned by the county, according to Amadio.
    “It took me a long time to be convinced the sale of Friendship Ridge was necessary,” Amadio said Friday.
    His father died as a resident of the nursing home and “loved the place,” Amadio said.

    Just my opinion, Amadio you fucking low life scum. All the fucking money you make and you let your own father die in that fucking shit hole you call a nursing home. Burn in hell!
