A Shelby native pleaded guilty Thursday in a federal court to charges related to her involvement in a Medicaid scheme.
Sixty-one year-old Linda Smoot Radeker pleaded guilty to three counts of fraud conspiracy and money laundering, all felonies.
Radaker let co-conspirators use her Medicaid number to file false medical claims under the names of children from the area. She profited over $6 million from the scheme. Radaker could face millions of dollars worth of fines and up to 30 years of prison time.
