The questions are rolling in regarding Aarvah Quinonez and how she managed to keep her job as a Hartford Firefighter, even before her arrest yesterday on Child Abuse charges.
There also seems to be some real questions regarding Quinonez and other Hartford Firefighters use, or more appropriately abuse, of Workers Compensation benefits for extended periods.
According to sources, Quinonez was recently observed by a former Hartford Fire Chief ( before he became the former Chief and while he was still overseeing the Department). That Chief had apparently attended a soccer game for his niece and while there observed Quinonez refereeing the soccer game. Quinonez was allegedly out on a Worker's Compensation injury that kept her from her regular job, but she could run and referee a soccer game.
Apparently there are also questions regarding her arrest in Georgia in July of 2004 and if that figured into her background investigation before her hiring by the City.
