Judge Rejects Woman’s No Contest Plea For Health Care Fraud Charges

Mealey's (September 16, 2015, 8:39 AM EDT) -- PHILADELPHIA — A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11 rejected a woman’s request to plead no contest to 13 charges of health care fraud for her role in a $16 million Medicare fraud scheme, ruling that accepting the plea would not favor the public interest and that the evidence against the defendant was just as strong as her co-defendants, who have already been convicted (United States of America v. Patricia McGill, No. 12-112-01, E.D. Pa.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 121832).
