Saltville Rescue Squad Member Faces Fine & 10-Years
According to federal court documents a Saltville Rescue Squad member now faces 10-years in prison and a 250-thousand dollar fine. Monica Jane Hicks went along with a plea agreement to one charge of health care fraud. She admitted guilt to a felony count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud in U.S. District Court in Abingdon. Court records show that the second person charged in the case is former squad President Eddie Wayne Louthian Senior who is scheduled for a two week jury trial in September. Well over two and a half million dollars worth of fraudulent billing slips were sent to insurance companies from December 2010 until September 2011. Louthian and the squad face charges relating to health care and bank fraud and he is facing 60-years in prison if found guilty. The squad could lose financial assets. Federal prosecutors filed criminal charges against the squad as a corporation that forced them to forfeit 800-thousand dollars that is thought to have been made from the alleged health care fraud. The squad has been allowed to make emergency calls and spend what they receive from donations and billed services and the court is allowing them 20-thousand dollars from bank funds to be used on legal fees.
