A former state welfare worker has been charged with tampering with government records by falsely approving people for food stamps, according to the state attorney general's office.

Erlinda Delacruzham, 59, was charged Oct. 23 with four counts of tampering with a government record and four counts of misapplication of entrusted property. 

The attorney general's office said the suspect on four occasions knowingly created false approval notifications to food stamp welfare recipients.

LIsten up. Go Google Erlinda Delacurzham and you'll see she screwed up a trial and kinda lied about not doing doing some investigative work on her own about the defendant on trial and sharing her findings at her welfare office files. CRAZY! Also that trial defendant was Mr. Raymond Augustin, he shot his brother in law in a quarrel. If I'm not mistaken Augustin just been in trouble recently too. Mean bruddah

I think that yes, locals, work at the food stamp office, unless we have people commuting from the mainland for work.

In 1996 she served as a juror in a criminal case and obtained confidential welfare information from her work and shared it with the other jurors. This resulted in a mistrial. Fast forward seventeen years and she is still working for the welfare office and still doing inappropriate activity. I guess the State hasn't figured her out yet. Simple solution, privatize the services so that you can take action with the subpar employees. Gov't has many subpar employees = subpar service.

Funny, when she ran for Mrs. Filipina, she said, "her life's goal is to remain as a shining example for her daughter, Dalisay Welborn and for other young women of Hawaii to emulate". Some example huh? Shining.
