Barbara Jones, a resident of Jackson, Miss., was sentenced to five years in prison for Medicaid fraud, with four years suspended. Jones, who entered a guilty plea on Tuesday, fraudulently billed Medicaid for more than 130 children's prescription glasses that were unnecessary and were never delivered, officials say. Jones was also ordered to pay restitution in excess of $28,000 and a penalty of over $84,000.
