Trumann woman sentenced for Medicaid fraud

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - A Pulaski County Circuit Court judge sentenced a Trumann woman to five years probation Monday on a Medicaid fraud charge.

Kelly Gregg, 43, of Trumann pleaded guilty to billing for Medicaid services not provided, a Class B felony, according to a news release from Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

In addition to probation, Gregg must also pay $3,557.31 in restitution and $10,671.93 in fines.

Police arrested Gregg in December 2014 after investigators learned she was billing for services to a friend's mother between January 2013 and March 2014 but was not providing the services, Rutledge said.
