People go to department of health board of nursing and read marlie's daughter case Ashley Capitola vega RN ? Know the real story of lies and lies .
The Truth? (by: Real Truth - 6/25/2013)
The TRUTH? This has got to be Missy or Gail typing all this non-sense. Sounds more like Gail who was just one of the trouble makers at SHC. Jeramey was too. The truth will come out and it'll be in the papers again some day soon. It's NOT all this conspiracy stuff. Ain't nobody hiding. If she stole $1 Million dollars why did she come back to Sebring. All I can say is it WILL all come out and it's nothing like what these people who "think" they know, and it's way more going on than simple-minded conspiracy and Marlie did it all. But this "Truth" stuff sounds more like a ridiculous witch-hunt full of insinuations. You would fit right in with the witch-hunters long time ago. No evidence of anything. Just show up to Tampa and burn them all eh. Everybody is hiding... but you know where they are. Maybe it's a son who , supposedly hiding, came back to FL also to help his mom? And his sister who needed a place to stay. Is that even a possibility in your small vengeful mind?
Investigate 2 family members (by: The Truth - 6/12/2013)
Marlie has been released from jail n has bonded herself. She's hiding her children who know exactly what she has done in fact they are in it .... Who are they ? A drug offender over and over again who goes around sleeping with different men to get drugs crack and money - a nurse who lost her RN license named Ashley Capitola Vega . A truck driver who fleed to Texas named Jonathon and a greedy other son named Jeremy. Husband or whatever named George is also in . Why is the prosecutor not grilling anyone of her mentally sick children ? Mental illness runs in this family- manipulators and liars ! Be smart justice system don't leave any stone un turned. They are hiding in Tampa Fl check probation office n u can track the liars -
Marlie????? (by: Old Friend, Skeptical - 5/20/2013)
My children were friends with her children growing up and we were very close friends many years ago. She was a true friend in every sense of the word. As our kids all grew up and on to their lives. She was supporting her kids as a single Mom and we grew apart and out of touch as life goes sometimes. I know that people can change and I sure hope this is not true.
Hey Professional (by: Non Professional - 5/6/2013)
Professional are just as crooked as non professional example Haile, Carlson and Manley. Do i make my point
Gatta bad feeling (by: snoopington - 5/3/2013)
Wonder if any patients got ripped off. Case needs to be fully investigated. There is more to this story. If you would steal from your boss, would you rob their customers also?
and they say used car dealers are biggest crooks lmao (by: Big John - 5/3/2013)
I say the Doctors have book sense,but no walking around common sense lol.....as for Marlie when the D.A AND JUDGE ESTRADA GETS DONE WITH YOU,CANCER WILL BE ON THE BACK BURNER...they fry em all
crazy (by: concerned citizez - 5/2/2013)
U know its bad when the docs are taking loans from there employees. they deserve what they got.
! (by: no fan of Marlie - 5/2/2013)
Marlie clearly has some mental pathology making her borderline evil. She duped everyone by claiming to have a terminal illness and no one would ever suspect someone of dying to be a manipulative liar and thief. plus if you were to fire a person with a terminal illness what kind of person would you be? Anyone who knew Marlie knew she was smart but how that turned into the evil sick person she is??? if this goes to trial the whole truth will come out ......she had to have had help...remember while she was doing this the doctors were seeing patients and saving lives, better to be a great dr. and a trusting person........wait for the rest of the story........shocking to be sure
unbelievable !!! (by: Quest - 5/2/2013)
Something tells me this may be running in the family.... Where are they anyway ?
(by: Karma - 5/2/2013)
I have nothing but respect for the doctors they are very hard working and great at what they do! They trusted Marlie. They could not have known or expected this! This could happen to anyone/business. I'm sure this is not the first time Marlie has done this, she thought she was untouchable!
Signing checks (by: Amelia - 5/2/2013)
I don't get it. She's signing checks in front of everybody maybe it was understood by them that she was doing it. As long as it was going towards bills. Doesn't sound like she was hiding it.
not the first time (by: anon - 5/2/2013)
This is not her first rodeo, people. Marlee has a long, long history of this kind of activity. I'll be watching to see who she throws under the bus to try to save her own skin. I hope she finally gets some time in prison for this one. It's been a long time comin'.
to trusting (by: Danielle - 5/2/2013)
what people dont know is she faked having cancer to get sympathy from her employeers and there were several family members working at that office. Her employers are compasionate people who trusted a woman who they thought was strugling with a life threatening illness. I have known these Doctors profesionally and personally and can tell you they have very giving hearts and would have given her the money if they had it to give and have given her alot of money not mentioned here. She is a gready person.

It's obama's fault!
Guilty (by: Windy - 5/2/2013)
If you steal, you must pay.. People in America can't afford to see Drs and here she is stealing and living the high life.. Must be nice! Karma is a B*tch! And I hope she gets what she and anyone else that knew or helped her get what they deserve. Honest people struggle day to day to find a help willing to work for pennies, I just she felt she was worth more then the rest of us.
Comment (by: AP Resident - 5/2/2013)
Yes, we're all aware of the "innocent until proven guilty" and I'm sure I'm not the only one with confidence in our judicial system. She'll get her due. My sympathy goes out to the doctors, as it's clear that hindsight is 20/20. There are scammers all over the place and nobody is ever exempt from being a victim.
What's wrong here? (by: dingo - 5/2/2013)
One of the doctors got a loan from her? What's up with this doctor? I wouldn't want to see them. Mays one wonder are they capable of seeing patients.
(by: captain obvious - 5/2/2013)
shame on the morons that let it happen right infront of them
No surprise here... (by: Buck Stops Here - 5/1/2013)
Having also dealt with Marlie professionally I totally agree. She was a rude, sneaky, and dishonest person who managed to operate under the radar of the arrogant group of doctors that employed her. Why anyone would employ her as an office manager for any length of time is beyond me. So in closing Marlie, ha ha. I hope you get what you deserve.
More to come... (by: Staying tuned - 5/1/2013)
I hear people wondering how this could go on for so long and the doctors not know. Perhaps when there are a lot of hands in the cookie jar, the other hands turn a blind eye. Just food for thought...
Destiny (by: Fate - 5/1/2013)
What does one do or say about a scheming,pitiful,non trustworthy person?? Can this be the person who led her friends to believe that she so sadly had cancer and how could she tell her family good bye? Easy, did she look ill?? No, just a person sick needing mental help for taking money from her company to benefit her and the family for her soon demise. So they thought! Who's joking now??To hold many positions in the community and yet be lies! A former Christian teacher I guess does not remember one of the Ten Commandments, Thou Shall Not Steal! Guess the judicial system will decide now and remember God will be your final Judge! Karma does get you in the end!!
Idiots (by: Redneck hillbillies - 5/1/2013)
The physicians in this practice are all idiots and I wouldn't trust them with trimming my dogs nails let alone heart health! These four physicians all trusted this ONE woman to handle all their monies??? Are you kidding me right now? One of the physicians asked to borrow 25k from her???? HUH.?
Rip-off Artist... (by: foodforthought - 5/1/2013)
I agree with "professional's"comments.
GUILTY!!!!!!!!!!!!! (by: karma is catching up! - 5/1/2013)
She is guilty - seen her do it & sign all 3 doctors names on checks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! & had me fired to try & hide from it 4 years ago!!!!!!!!! Tried to tell them then - the Doctors didnt want to listen.
Gotta expect nasty stuff on the internet I guess. (by: Devil's Advocate - 5/1/2013)
TRUTH: How would somebody know she couldn't afford her lifestyle? She lived in a .... 120-150k house.. drove 30k cars (IF they were bought new). You make it sound like she was living like Kim Kardashian or something. Obviously there are gonna be some people that have bitter feelings.. and will have likewise "bitter" comments. I guess nobody is liked by everybody. And the bad thing about the internet is most people that would have something positive to say don't participate in the hate speech.
Even in a small town (by: Just saying! - 5/1/2013)
For some reason I am thinking if this person is guilty...her sentence will NOT be as harsh as Melissa Lusbys!
Innocent until proven (by: Knightomi - 5/1/2013)
I know marlie for years and I worked in the medical community serving the needs of people. Please let's all remember that only the good lord can judge. We all don't know the truth so let us all not jump to conclusions as if we all don't want to be judged by people ourselves. Let's remember when Christ was judged and suffered so much .... He never said a word but still loves us to this very day. Lets give marlie a chance in court to prove her innocence but again irregardless of what and where this case may go, God forgives you can you forgive others who judged you wrong ?
time will provide truth and clarity (by: Eyes wide open - 5/1/2013)
The investigators clearly found evidence ...enough for an arrest so let the justice system prevail and a judge can be the voice of reason. Any and everyone can have an opinion but the facts speak for themselves....I have compassion for the loss of trust felt by all the employees.....
wow (by: GL - 5/1/2013)
She was my office manager for 2 years... I'm shocked she was caught.. but not surprised. I could tell you some stories.. but that's not the person I am... I will say God bless her and her family!!
(by: Blindman~ - 5/1/2013)
It's surprising to see a supporter mention medicare fraud. Seems like that would put the office manager at the center of it all if it were true, and also provided an explanation for why an office manager would see themselves as less of an employee and more as a partner in the business.
Checks & Balances NEED to be in place in Every MEDICAL OFFICE (by: Professional - 5/1/2013)
I think Marlee wrote the first comment on here 5/1/13. Marlee was not well-liked as claimed. She was a Crude, Sneaky, Dishonest person to work with in town. Her behavior was unprofessional and she seemed to think that she could behave in such ridiculous ways because she would get away with it. As a physician in town we attempted to contact a physician at the SHC 2.9 years ago to alert them that something was off with this woman. However, the SHC physician chose not to contact us despite many messages left.
Yahoooo (by: Fianally - 5/1/2013)
About time. At least she will be with her family . What comes around goes around just time that's all.
Are you serious right now?! (by: TRUTH - 5/1/2013)
LMAO!!! If you want to scream innocent until proven quilty just sit back and wait, it's going to be proven. From someone who grew up on the same street as her and her family lived on and played with her kids...Please! She didn't have that kind of money to support the lifestyle she projected. Especially working at a docs office. And for her to think she wasn't ever going to be caught is even funnier to me. Why should her trial get moved? She didnt go out of town to steal, she deserves to be embarassed right here where everyone knew her.
Innocent before proven guilty (by: anon - 5/1/2013)
That article is a direct copy/paste of public records from the "alleged" charges. Every accusation says "alleged" next to it. So I think people should remember you're innocent before proven guilty. She'll probably have to move her trial out of town b/c of the way people react like this. Ask anybody in the medical field around town and they'll tell you that place had all sorts of problems with medicare fraud and stuff. They might just be trying to blame it all on her. Ask people who use to work there and you'll hear a lot of stories about everything but Marlie. Ask people who knew Marlie and you'll hear a lot of stories about how good a person she was. I think she should be given her day in court. And the people that knew her should remember why they liked and trusted her in the first place. She was a highly respected person in the community for decades. And all of this right now is accusations.
Trust but verify~ (by: Blindman~ - 4/30/2013)
What a shock! You think you know someone after working with them for years, then you come to find out you really don't. When your office manager is stealing almost a thousand dollars a day from right under your nose for over 4 years it says a couple of things. 1. Your generating a good cash flow. 2. Your definitely more focused on the health, care, and welfare of your patients than you are on money. And 3. The office manager made herself a pseudo partner without your consent.

Wow. I know times are hard, but dang.
