An examination of court records and news articles shows that Van Dusen has had previous involvement with lawsuits, police and public accusations.

• In September 1992, when she was known as Charlene O’-Brien, Amherst police charged her with grand larceny. Police said she paid $200 to two temporary employees of a furniture store to give her $1,269 worth of furniture. According to court papers, charges were later dismissed.

• In April 1993, she publicly accused Publishers Clearing House of calling her house and falsely promising that her then-husband, Wayne, had won $1 million. The sweepstakes company denied any wrongdoing, and it is unclear what else occurred in the matter.

• In 1997, she sued an Amherst doctor for malpractice. The lawsuit went to trial, and a jury ruled in the doctor’s favor.

• In a matter still pending in State Supreme Court, Van Dusen sought $4 million in damages in a suit against a City of Tonawanda insurance agency, saying she suffered a back injury when her heel caught on a broken piece of wood in the insurance company’s doorway. The incident happened in March 2001.

During a trial in January 2005, James P. Burgio, an attorney for the insurance company, accused Van Dusen of falsely claiming an injury so she could obtain prescription painkillers. The attorney accused Van Dusen of having an extensive history of abusing pain medications, an accusation she denies.

A jury verdict went against Van Dusen in the case, and she was awarded no money. But an appeals court later overturned the verdict and granted Van Dusen a new trial, which has not yet been scheduled.

When asked Monday whether she has ever had a drug problem, Van Dusen said,“Absolutely not.”
