CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The founder of a St. Albans in-home care business has been sentenced to 46 months in federal prison for health care fraud conspiracy.

The government says 63-year-old Shida S. Jamie was sentenced Thursday after admitting last October that she altered and falsified records and documents of Golden Heart. She was also executive director of the provider of in-home care services to the elderly and aging under contract with a West Virginia Medicaid provider.

Prosecutors have also settled civil cases against Jamie and Golden Heart to recover losses associated with the Medicaid fraud.
