TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today Attorney General Pam Bondi announced the arrest of a Calhoun County resident for Medicaid Fraud. Following an investigation by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, Adria Aultman, 37, was taken into custody by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office.
Attorney General Investigators determined that Aultman, a licensed practical nurse, falsified her time sheets and failed to provide necessary services to a patient in Liberty County. This resulted in over $12,000 in fraudulent Medicaid billing.
Aultman was arrested for one count of Medicaid Fraud, a second-degree felony, and faces up to 15 years in prison and more than $70,000 in fines, if convicted. The case will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office for the Second Judicial Circuit.
