“Our office takes all fraud, especially Medicaid fraud, very seriously,” said Attorney General Jeff Landry. “We will support law enforcement to investigate, apprehend, and prosecute those who defraud our state and its people.”

Robinson – 43, of 507 Fox Run Avenue in Lafayette – was arrested today by Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit investigators with the assistance of the Broussard Police Department. She will be booked into the Lafayette Parish Prison.
