The former CEO of Oasis Medical Clinic in Plainview will spend more than two years in prison for medical fraud.
Angela Michelle Edwards sat down with NewsChannel 11 in April of 2002 for a segment called Power of Prayer. At that time, the medical center had been open for just more than a month, and according to her testimony, Edwards was also defrauding insurance agencies at that time.
In December of 2007, she plead guilty to health care fraud. Edwards confessed to changing insurance forms to receive higher payments.
Friday, Federal Judge Sam Cummings sentenced Edwards to 30-months in prison. He also ordered her to pay more than $370,000 in restitution.
Edwards must surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on April 18th.
