BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The accounting firm for a former boarding facility for socially and emotionally challenged children is paying Vermont and the federal government a total of $105,000 as part of a settlement.

The Bennington Banner reports (https://bit.ly/1smxkU3 ) the former Bennington Schools Inc. saw four of its administrators convicted of tax fraud. Federal prosecutors say Kushi and Myers PC should have known there were problems with the school’s filings to obtain Medicaid funding.

The Massachusetts firm isn’t admitting liability by agreeing to the settlement.

Bennington Schools Inc.’s founder and president pleaded guilty to health care fraud and tax evasion. The school’s plant manager, chief financial officer and executive director also pleaded guilty in the case.

Bennington Schools came under new ownership in 2013 and now goes by the name Vermont School for Girls.
