Lawmaker's son convicted of Medicaid fraud

The son of a state representative in Florida has been convicted of defrauding the state's Medicaid program. Gregory Campbell, the son of Rep. Daphne Campbell (D-Miami) was convicted Friday for stealing almost $300,000 from Medicaid and could face up to 45 years in prison, reported the Miami Herald. Campbell and two other conspirators billed Medicaid for services that weren't provided at three group homes in the Miami area. One of Campbell's conspirators has pled guilty to other related fraud charges before, while the third conspirator is a fugitive wanted by authorities. The jury convicted Campbell of first-degree felony charges of organized fraud and Medicaid fraud and a second-degree felony charge of conspiracy to commit Medicaid fraud. Article
