WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A former Waterloo care center worker has been given probation for submitting fake bills for services.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1DglTAy ) that 31-year-old Renae Minikus was granted a deferred judgment, meaning the case will be removed from her record if she successfully completes probation. She’d pleaded guilty to fraud and forgery charges.

Officials with the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals Medicaid Fraud Unit say Minikus, who had worked at the Respite Connection, had submitted false records about providing two months of care for a client.

Respite Connection provides services for caregivers of people with brain injuries and disabilities.
