    TAMPA -- Two longtime employees at the state's child welfare agency have resigned after learning they would be fired for arranging an auction where confidential files were accidentally sold.

    Don Calderoni, a general services specialist, and Luis Carbonell, a general services manager, resigned Monday in lieu of termination, said Shawnna Donovan, spokeswoman for the Department of Children and Families.

    Calderoni had worked for the agency in the Tampa Bay area for 19 years and Carbonell for 15 years, Donovan said.

    The two were negligent when they arranged a May 30 auction of state property, Donovan told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale.

    Mike Deeson, a reporter for WTSP-Ch. 10 in Tampa, bought 50 boxes of agency files at the auction for $5. The documents included case files, abuse reports, pay stubs from parents and psychiatric evaluations, he said.
