Release Date: Aug 25, 2011

WICHITA – (August 25, 2011) – A Sedgwick County Court today sentenced Francisco Montes, Jr., Derby, to nearly two years in prison after he pled guilty to two counts of unlawful acts relating to the Medicaid program and one count of making a false claim to the Medicaid program, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced.

Montes, age 34, was sentenced by Judge Douglas Roth to 21 months in prison. The State alleged that Montes signed fraudulent timesheets for “home-based” services in exchange for a portion of the Medicaid reimbursement.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Amanda Voth from Schmidt’s office. The total loss to the Kansas Medicaid Program was $5,325.60, and restitution has been ordered in that amount. Agents from the United States Department of Health and Human Services aided in the investigation.
