Montgomery man arrested on fraud charges

A Montgomery man is under arrest, charged with Medicaid fraud and stealing from a children's nursing home and the State Medicaid Agency.  A grand jury indicted Louis Tucker, the former owner of Mobility Experts, a medical equipment company. 

The indictment charges Tucker with:

  • One count of Medicaid Fraud, punishable by up to 10 years and a fine up to $10,000.
  • One count of first-degree theft of property by deception, from the Alabama Medicaid Agency; punishable by two to 20 years and a fine of up to $30,000.
  • Two counts of second-degree theft of property by deception, from the Father Walter Memorial Child Care Center, a pediatric nursing home in Montgomery.  That is punishable by one to 10 years and a fine of up to $15,000 for each count.

"Theft and fraud involving Medicaid funds and money from a children's nursing home are serious allegations of crimes against those who are among our most vulnerable and needy citizens," said Attorney General King. "My commitment to the citizens of Alabama is that I will act to protect our children, and to investigate such crimes and take action where it is appropriate."

Tucker is in the Montgomery County Detention Center under $20,000 bond.

The case was investigated by Senior Special Agent Gerald Shockley and Special Agent Tracey Edwards of Attorney General King's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, and is being prosecuted by the unit's chief, Assistant Attorney General Bruce Lieberman.
