medicaid(AP) — Sentencing has been scheduled in May for an Omaha man who pleaded guilty to health care fraud and nine federal misdemeanors.

A news release from the office of Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said Wednesday that James Holt and his company, UMOJA, provide mental health services. The news release says Holt and his company stole money by billing Nebraska Medicaid for services that weren’t actually provided.

As part of the agreement, Holt and his company agreed to make restitution of about $15,000.

Sentencing is set for May 13.
