Letcher County Therapist Sentenced

Attorney General Jack Conway and the Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control announced a plea agreement had been reached in the case of a Kentucky physical therapist arrested earlier in 2008 on charges she defrauded the Kentucky Medicaid Program. Tiffany Bentley, 29, from Corona, in Letcher County, pled guilty in Jefferson Circuit Court to Medicaid fraud, a class D felony, which carries a one year sentence. Under the terms of the plea agreement, the court ordered Bentley to a sentence of one year in the Kentucky Department of Corrections. The sentence will be diverted for a period of five years. As a condition of her diversion, the defendant was ordered to pay restitution to the Kentucky Medicaid Program for a total amount of $1,562.00 and to reimburse the Attorney General's Office for investigative costs.
