Delhi Woman Arrested for Exploitation of the Infirmed

A Delhi woman has been arrested and charged with three-counts of Exploitation of the Infirmed, announced Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

Lillie W. Griffin, 58, of 111 ½ Church Street, was arrested Tuesday by Medicaid Fraud Control Unit investigators with assistance from the Richland Parish Sheriff’s Office and was booked into the Richland Parish Prison on three-counts of Exploitation of the Infirmed. Griffin, a former employee of a Medicaid services provider, purchased three money orders totaling $2,346 on behalf of a person she was assigned to care for. However, the money orders were made payable to Griffin, who deposited two of them into her checking account for personal use.

The crime of Exploitation of the Infirmed includes the intentional expenditure, diminution, or use, by any person, including a caregiver, of the property or assets of the infirmed, a disabled adult, or an aged person without the express, voluntary consent of the resident, or the consent of a legally authorized representative of an incompetent resident, or by means of fraudulent conduct, practices, or representations.

To report suspected Medicaid fraud, please contact the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit at 888-799-6885
