A federal judge has sentenced four people to prison for health care fraud, including former Moss Point Municipal Judge Jimmy Davis Hull.
The Moss Point-based conspiracy defrauded Medicare of more than $5 million in a scheme to send unqualified employees into the homes of elderly Medicare patients, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Evidence presented at trial in January showed the patients received bogus physical therapy treatments and Medicare was billed as much as $1,300 per visit.
The companies also had offices in Biloxi, Tchula, Durant and Jackson.
U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. gave prison terms of 10 years each to Pamela Hull and Jacqualine Crawley. Both were found guilty on multiple counts including conspiracy to commit fraud. They were owners or partners of Rehabilicare Inc., Mississippi Care Partners Inc., Select Care Inc. and Statewide Physical Medicine.
