Delta case manager gets prison time for Medicaid fraud

handcuffsGREENVILLE — A Greenville resident is going to prison for Medicaid fraud.

Attorney General Jim Hood says Marguerite Wilson, 31, of Greenville, appeared before Judge Ashley Hines in Washington County Circuit Court yesterday to be sentenced after pleading guilty to three counts of Medicaid Fraud in January.

Wilson was sentenced to five years in prison, with two to serve on each count and all to run concurrently. Restitution was ordered in the amount of $13,488.03. After serving her sentence, Wilson will remain on post-release supervision until the restitution is paid in full. She was also ordered to pay $500 to the Mississippi Crime Victim Compensation Fund, as well as court costs and assessments.

Wilson was working as a case manager for Delta Community Mental Health Center at the time the crimes were committed. She admitted to billing Medicaid for services she never rendered.
