Our client was a 60-year-old man who was indicted on 73 counts of healthcare fraud. He had been in charge of accounts payable at a corporation that managed nursing homes prosecutors accused him of allowing residents to receive inadequate care. However, our client was based in another state and had no direct control over residents’ care. He came to the Roanoke criminal defense attorneys at Copenhaver, Ellett & Derrico to defend him in his healthcare fraud case.
Our client had no prior criminal history. Attorney Michelle Derrico was able to convince prosecutors to withdraw the charges against him and allow him to complete a pretrial diversion program.
