 5/16/18 - Rutledge Announces Pulaski County Woman Sentenced for Medicaid Fraud

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas, May 15 Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge issued the following news release:

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced the conviction of a Pulaski County woman on Medicaid fraud charges.

Shavita Wilson pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud in Pulaski County Circuit Court. She was sentenced to 3 years probation and must pay $600 in fines and court costs. Wilson has already paid $5,000 in restitution to the Arkansas Medicaid Program Trust Fund.

"Shavita Wilson took advantage of a vital safety net for many Arkansans and is now paying for the crime she committed," said Attorney General Rutledge. "Abusing the Medicaid system is unacceptable and harms the Arkansans who depend on it for important care. The Attorney General's Office will continue to investigate and prosecute these crimes to hold those who take advantage of the Medicaid system accountable for their actions."

Wilson, 46, of Little Rock, pleaded guilty to one count of Medicaid fraud, a Class C felony, for making false statements while applying for payments from the Arkansas Medicaid Program.

This case was referred to the MFCU by the Arkansas Department of Human Services, Division of Aging and Adult Services and prosecuted in coordination with Sixth Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley.
