Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt announced that Mamie Ree Hubbard-Washington, 73, of Las Vegas, was sentenced for Medicaid fraud.
 
The fraud was committed between April and August 2012.
 
Eighth Judicial District Court Judge Michelle Leavitt sentenced Hubbard-Washington to one count of conspiracy to submit false claims, a gross misdemeanor.
 
As a part of her sentence, Hubbard-Washington was ordered to serve a term of up to 364 days in prison and pay restitution of more than $1,200.
 
Additionally, Hubbard-Washington has been excluded from providing future Medicaid services.
 
The investigation began after the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) discovered that Hubbard-Washington had submitted an application to Medicaid to be a provider of Medicaid services without disclosing a prior conviction for felony child abuse.
 
Failure to disclose this information is in violation of state and federal law.
