Adekale v. State

After a jury trial, Defendant was found guilty of fifteen counts of felony Medicaid fraud and one count of misdemeanor Medicaid fraud. Defendant appealed, arguing, among other things, that the State failed to present sufficient evidence that he provided “medical assistance” to Medicaid recipients as defined in the relevant statute. The Supreme Court affirmed in part and remanded in part, holding that the district court (1) did not abuse its discretion in denying Defendant’s motion for judgment of acquittal because the State produced sufficient evidence that Defendant provided “medical assistance”; (2) did not err in instructing the jury; but (3) erred in its sentence on one of the counts. Remanded for resentencing. View "Adekale v. State" on Justia Law
