Virginia News

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say the former owner of a Richmond assisted living facility has pleaded guilty to health care fraud after spending more than $800,000 meant for residents’ care on travel, personal debts and gambling.

Mable Jones owned and operated Jones & Jones, an assisted living facility for elderly and incapacitated adults.

Court documents state Jones spent more than $800,000 of residents’ benefits on herself, which led to deficiencies that endangered residents’ health and safety.

Jones faces a maximum of 10 years in prison at sentencing, which is set for January.
