Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
“What a tangle web we weave when at first we practise to deceive,” Walter Scott quote best befits today’s CrimeDiva Sharon Iglehart, 58, of Harris County, TX where she was convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, one count of health care fraud and three counts of making false statements relating to health care matters.
I really don’t understand why Ms. Iglehart took this case to trial when 12 others in connection to this case were found guilty and are either in prison or on their way to prison. I have said time and time again in these type of cases, if you are guilty, it is best to take a plea deal otherwise you end up getting far more time just for making the prosecution try the case.
This is another corruption case connected with the health care greed industry. According to records, from 2006 until 2012 Ms. Iglehart and other defrauded the Medicare program out of $158 million billed through Riverside General Hospital which supposely provided intensive outpatient treatment for severe mental illness. The government claimed these serivces were not provided to the Medicare beneficiaries and Ms. Igelhart and others falsified and then lied about the services. At trial the government produced evidence showing that M.s Iglehart personally billed Medicare for services she never provided.
Ms. Iglehart sentencing is set for Dec. 5, 2015. We can be sure that the court will he handing out some hefty time as it have with all the other co-defendants.
