DHS Worker Charged Again

She is accused of financially exploiting a second vulnerable man.

A former Department of Human Services employee is now charged in two separate Tulsa County felony cases with financially exploiting vulnerable adults.

Prosecutors charged Debra Maxine Roberts, who was a DHS adult protective services specialist, with taking nearly $4,500 in funds belonging to 84-year-old James True.

Roberts was a temporary guardian for True. In her guardian's capacity, Roberts had the authority to use True's finances to pay for his residential care and daily living expenses.

In another case, Roberts was charged in September with financially exploiting Claude Spencer — identified by prosecutors as a 74-year-old mentally disabled Sand Springs man — by converting approximately $5,900 of his money to her own use. Roberts became a temporary guardian for Spencer in 2007.

A young child in kindergarten or 1st grade would ask:

WHY IN THE _ _ _ _ IS THIS PERSON, THIS CROOK, Debra Maxine Roberts, STILL WORKING IN A POSITION OF TRUST???????

How many more victims on the side of the road before "someone" with a thimble full of reason will say "hey, get out of this office"?

This has to be a sick joke, yes?

Roberts is being PAID as: a protective services specialist.

Oh, please Tulsa County give me a break with this ongoing insanity.

Just throw the crook in a cage - throw away the key and let nature take it's course.
