Lynette Delczeg

— Lynette Delczeg, 40 years of age, of 493 River Road, Riparius was charged with Welfare Fraud in the 2nd degree and four (4) counts of Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the 1st Degree after an investigation into a report from the Warren County Department of Social Services (DSS) that she failed to accurately report her household address and composition when she filed an application and re-certifications to receive Medical Assistance benefits.

The complaints allege that while residing in the Town of Corinth in Saratoga County from 2010 thru 2013, Delczeg filed multiple applications to obtain medical assistance benefits from the Warren County Department of Social Services, claiming that she lived in Riparius in Warren County. As a result, she obtained more than $50,850 in Medicaid benefits that she was otherwise not entitled to receive.

Delczeg was arraigned in Queensbury Town Court on 1/6/2014 and was released on her own recognizance and was directed to re-appear on February 3, 2014.

The investigation was conducted by Warren County Sheriff’s Investigator Kevin W. Conine and Warren County Department of Social Services Investigator Sharon Walter.
