A Waldorf man will have to pay a hefty fine after orchestrating Medicaid fraud, according to a news release from the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.
Leon Wilson, 54, is a licensed counselor listed online as practicing in Alexandria, Va. In December, Wilson was indicted on charges of felony Medicaid fraud and felony theft.
From December 2011 to October 2012, Wilson submitted claims that indicated he’d seen and treated patients twice a week when he had only seen them once a week, the AG’s office reported.
Prince George’s County Circuit Judge Nicholas E. Rattal sentenced Wilson to three years of supervised probation and also issued a $5,069.88 fine and 100 hours of community service.
In a another incident, a North Beach woman has been indicted on charges of fraud and theft to the tune of more than $200,000 during a five-year period.
Delores Gertrude Jones, 58, is accused of inappropriately funneling funds away while working as the deputy director of the Temple Hills child support office, a division of the Maryland Department of Human Resources. Jones allegedly submitted false entries to the public record to try and cover up her tracks, according to the release. Combined, she could face as much as 40 years of jail time.
Jones is set for arraignment July 18.
