DETROIT (AP) - A federal jury in Detroit has convicted the operator of an adult day care center and two home health care company owners in a $29 million Medicare fraud conspiracy.

The U.S. Justice Department announced Wednesday that 51-year-old Felicar Williams, 54-year-old Abdul Malik Al-Jumail and 25-year-old Jamella Al-Jumail were found guilty late Tuesday of billing Medicare for health services that weren’t provided. The conviction comes after a 12-week trial.

Prosecutors say Abdul Malik Al-Jumail paid kickbacks to Williams for billing information about patients at Haven Adult Day Care Center. Al-Jumail used the information to fraudulently bill Medicare through multiple health care companies.

Investigators found Jamella Al-Jumail burned falsified patient records the day her father was arrested.

Sentencing hasn’t been scheduled.

Psychiatrist Carey Vigor of Algonac was also charged but was acquitted.
