New York City Employee Sentenced In Manhattan Federal Court For Million-Dollar Medicaid Fraud

Preet Bharara, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced today that AKIM MURRAY was sentenced in Manhattan federal court to 63 months in prison for orchestrating a substantial Medicaid fraud. MURRAY, a former employee of the Medicaid Reimbursement Unit of the New York City Human Resources Administration ("HRA"), was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman. MURRAY pled guilty in September 2014 to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud for abusing his access as an HRA employee in order to have dozens of checks amounting to over a million dollars issued to his friends and criminal associates, who in turn gave him a substantial cut of the proceeds.
