Stanton Witherspoon, a Liberian national living in the United States, is one of 25 people arrested by the United States Department of Justice on charges relating to a fraudulent nursing diploma and transcripts operation revealed in Florida, New Jersey, and New York. The indictment charges defendants Stanton Witherspoon of Burlington County, N.J.; Alfred Sellu of Burlington County, N.J.; and Rene Bernadel of Westchester County, N.Y. with conspiring to commit and committing wire fraud," the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida said in a press release issued late Wednesday. According to the indictment, Witherspoon, Sellu, and Bernadel solicited and recruited individuals seeking nursing credentials in order to work as an RN or LPN/VN. It is alleged that these defendants conspired with Sanon, who operated Siena College and is charged with wire fraud conspiracy, to make and distribute counterfeit and fraudulent diplomas and transcripts. These forged documents claimed that the aspiring RN and LPN/VN applicants had attended Siena College's nursing school in Broward County and completed the required coursework and clinicals to receive RN or LPN/VN certificates. In fact, the aspiring nurses never finished the required courses and clinicals. Witherspoon is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who works in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania and is affiliated with the Lee Training Institute in the state of Delaware as a Nursing Director. He formerly worked as an LPN at Bayada, a prominent nursing contractual agency. Mr. Witherspoon claims to be a Pastor, Freelance Multimedia Journalist, Digital Strategist, and Mental Health Enthusiast on his professional LinkedIn page, which has not been updated in a long time.
