BATESVILLE — A former Mississippi hospital executive wants a federal judge to acquit him or grant a new trial in an alleged medical kickback and bribery scheme.
Raymond Lamont Shoemaker of Tupelo was charged last year with receiving kickbacks for nursing services, conspiracy, embezzlement and other charges last year at Tri-Lakes Medical Center in Batesville.
Shoemaker was convicted March 2 with co-defendant Earnest Levi Garner Jr. of Batesville.
Shoemaker’s lawyers said in a court filing Friday that “the government’s evidence was insufficient to support the verdict.”
The indictment said Garner agreed to pay a kickback and bribe of $5 per hour for every hour of nursing services that Garner’s companies billed the medical center.
