Employee Defends Owner of Legacy Home Health

CORPUS CHRISTI - Business was back to normal today at Legacy Adult Day Care after yesterday's search by federal agents with a healthcare fraud task force.

The FBI remains tight lipped about the case, only saying its a joint investigation between the FBI, Medicare/Medicaid fraud unit and Health and Human Services.

Today, a current employee and personal friend of the owner, Ambrose Hernandez Jr, says he wants to set the record straight.

"Somebody may have done something improper. It would be a miracle if that did not happen but I can assure you as a 100 percent guarantee that it was not at the direction of Mr. Hernandez," says Robert Danesi, a clinical social worker at the facility.

Mr. Hernandez declined to speak with us directly about the investigation.
