Concord, NH -- Attorney General John M. Formella announces that Richard Wennerberg, age 72, of Grantham, pleaded guilty and was sentenced on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 in the Merrimack County Superior Court to two counts of class B felony Medicaid fraud. Wennerberg is the owner of Alternative Care @ Home, LLC, a company licensed to provide in-home personal care services to Medicaid beneficiaries.
