MIAMI, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- A Florida woman on house arrest pending the outcome of alleged fraud is still running an assisted-living facility catering to the elderly, officials said.

Tiffany Gordon was charged after allegedly billing a Miami hospital for $83,000 for temporary employees the company she led never actually supplied. Detectives allege the workers who got the checks were Gordon's friends and much of the money was kicked back to her.

Despite those allegations, Gordon is still listed as the chief executive officer, administrator and chief financial officer of Intraqual Premier Assisted Living Facility, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday -- all while not being allowed to leave her residence.

Florida health officials are reviewing Intraqual and may suspend its license following the Herald's report. State law says those charged or convicted of certain crimes -- including fraud -- are not allowed to operate assisted-living facilities.
