JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 31-year-old Greenville woman has been sentenced to five years in prison for three counts of Medicaid fraud.

Attorney General Jim Hood says Marguerite Wilson appeared Monday before Judge Ashley Hines in Washington County Circuit Court. In addition to the prison time, the judge ordered her to pay $13,488 in restitution and to remain on post-release supervision until it’s 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. In January, she admitted to billing Medicaid for services she never rendered.
