CUTHBERT, Ga. (AP) -- A Georgia judge sentenced the owner of a medical equipment company to two years in prison for Medicaid fraud.
The Georgia Attorney General's office said Eddie Leon Castleberry was also sentenced Wednesday to eight years of probation and ordered to pay $120,000 in restitution.
Castleberry owned the supply company Castle Medical in Cuthbert. Prosecutors say he repeatedly billed the state Medicaid program for medical equipment and diabetic supplies that were never delivered to the recipients between May 2007 and June 2010.
Officials say once he obtained a customer's Medicaid number, he would repeatedly bill that person's number for numerous pieces of equipment that were never ordered by the physician and not delivered to the patient.
