|U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin announced in a press release that Shida S. Jamie, 62, founder and executive director of Golden Heart In-Home Care, LLC, pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge.|
Jamie admitted to altering and falsifying records and documents at Golden Heart in August or early September 2009.
The Jamie family has faced numerous charges in the past.
Jamie admitted that she agreed with Golden Heart employees to falsify signatures on training documents to create the appearance of caregivers receiving training with personal care program guidelines, according to Goodwin's office.
Jamie also directed falsified files to be given to Putnam Aging so it would allow the Medicaid program to be billed for personal care services Golden Heart provided, according to the release.
Jamie agreed to alter employee records to create the appearance of another employee with a valid driver's license performing the services that an employee without a driver's license had actually performed, according to Goodwin's news release.
Jamie is now facing as many as five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced Jan. 16, 2013.
