No Criminal Charges Regarding Camarillo Health Care District

Ventura, California – District Attorney Gregory Totten announced today that his office will not be filing criminal charges against Jane Rozanski, former Chief Executive Officer of the Camarillo Health Care District, or Ralph Ferguson, the former attorney for the District.  Following an extensive investigation, the evidence obtained did not establish a crime relating to allegations that Ferguson charged the District for legal or consulting fees that he did not perform, or that Rozanski charged the District for travel expenses unrelated to official business.

Public officials have a solemn duty to safeguard public funds, and misappropriation of public funds is a serious offense.  In this case, between 2012 and 2015, Ferguson billed the District approximately $415,410.  It cannot be established that any criminal violations occurred.  Civil litigation between the District and Ferguson is ongoing regarding the appropriateness of the amounts billed, and between the District and Rozanski alleging a breach of her fiduciary obligation to the District.

We have sent a letter to the District explaining our decision.  A copy of that letter is attached.

The office employs approximately 280 employees including attorneys, investigators, victim advocates, and other professional support staff who strive to seek justice, ensure public safety, and protect the rights of crime victims.

    Any government has a free pass in this county, as long as Greg is elected. He never files criminal charges for them.
