CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Princeton man faces bribery and other charges stemming from a state Medicaid investigation.

James Cecil Nance is accused of directing and allowing employees of Life Ambulance to provide advanced life support services and bill Medicaid after the company ceased to have ambulances licensed for these services.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Medicaid Fraud Control Unit announced the charges Wednesday in a news release. The unit says the 43-year-old Nance is charged in Kanawha County Magistrate Court with bribery, false claims, conspiracy and criminal penalties.

According to the unit, Nance was Life Ambulance’s director of operations. Life Ambulance was part of First Med EMS, which shut down on Dec. 6, 2013.

The unit says Nance was arrested last week.
