Woman in Jail for Child’s Death Now Facing Fraud Charges

Home|Blog|Criminal Defense|Woman in Jail for Child’s Death Now Facing Fraud Charges

Any kind of white-collar crime can lead to serious legal problems for the person facing those charges. These types of crimes, including fraud, embezzlement and other similar offenses usually involve someone taking financial advantage of another person, organization or business. However, there is often a fine line between what is legal and illegal in many of these kinds of crimes. In fact, you might have done something illegal that you thought was perfectly ok.

However, even when a person is charged with a white-collar crime that he or she was not aware was a crime that person still needs to take those charges seriously and seek legal counsel right away. The authorities that investigate white-collar crimes often develop a case against a person over a long period of time. By the time they actually file the charges they most likely already have a very strong case. That means, if you are suspected of committing such a crime or you are facing the possibility of being charged, you need to start preparing a defense strategy right away.

An Ohio woman, who is already behind bars for manslaughter charges involving a the death of a teenage girl for whom she cared care for, is now facing fraud charges related to the case. According to authorities, the 45-year-old woman allegedly aided and abetted several other people in a scheme that was designed to defraud Medicaid, as well as taxpayers, from 2009 to 2011. According to the federal indictment, because the woman was a home care nurse she “was responsible for providing nursing services” for the girl for eight hours a day, six days per week.

According to court documents, because of the girl’s family’s financial situation, Medicaid was paying for her medical treatment. However, as part of that agreement, health care providers were charged with submitting accurate information, which detailed the services provided. Court papers state the woman in question continually submitted false representations and fraudulent service notes.

This is obviously a serious matter, for which this woman could spend several more years behind bars if convicted. Anyone in this kind of situation should not take the matter lightly. You need experienced and knowledgeable legal help working for you as soon as possible.
