Criminal Law: Health Care Fraud – Sufficiency Of Evidence – Intent

Where a defendant, who was convicted in a health care fraud conspiracy, covered up his role as a director of an organization that received federal funds by installing his wife as executive director, the evidence was sufficient for the district court to infer that both defendants knowingly and willfully executed a scheme to defraud a health care program.

Judgment is affirmed.
