VILLE PLATTE, LA (KPLC) -

A Ville Platte man has been charged with two counts of Medicaid fraud for filing false claims, according to Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

Caldwell, in a Tuesday news release, said that 36-year-old Brady P. Hudspeth was arrested on Thursday by the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office. 

Hudspeth was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison without incident.

Hudspeth, a former mental health counselor intern, is charged with submitting false timesheets to a New Orleans care center where he was employed.

Hudspeth allegedly fraudulently claimed that he provided services to Medicaid patients, resulting in the Medicaid program being falsely billed.

Authorities say if convicted of Medicaid fraud, Hudspeth could face up to five years in prison and pay up to $20,000 in fines on each count.

To report suspected Medicaid fraud, contact the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit at 1-888-799-6885.
