Another Texas dentist found guilty of committing medicaid dental fraud

The Abilene Reporter-News is reporting that after "a two-week-long trial before U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings, a jury has found James Crow, a dentist from Brownwood, guilty on 17 of the 20 counts of a superseding indictment charging offenses related to a health care fraud scheme he ran, announced U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks of the Northern District of Texas.  The U.S. attorney's office stated that the jury convicted Crow, 67, on two counts of making false statements involving a health care matter and 15 counts of health care fraud."

Below are the: 1) Indictment; 2) Jury Charge (note the questions from the jury--interesting); and 3) the Verdict (bad day for Dr. Crow--hope he enjoyed those Harley Davidson motorcycles paid for by your tax dollars--the Government is seeking to seize his assets and it looks like Dr. Crow had a thing for Harleys).

Congratulations to the AUSAs and the investigators.  A review of the case file reveals Dr. Crow put up a vigorous defense.   Of course it appears he had a lucrative dental practice funded by the taxpayers.
