C{*filter*}TE, N.C. (AP) -- A C{*filter*}te woman has pleaded guilty to
defrauding Medicaid through her company in order to purchase a
Mercedes.

U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins announced Wednesday that 43-year-old Joye
Strong faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and fines of up to
$250,000 per count in the case. In total, she was charged with eight
counts of health care fraud and two counts of money laundering.

Strong's company, Advocating for America, provided mental and
behavi{*filter*}health services in the C{*filter*}te area. For about five
months in 2009, Strong fraudulently billed Medicaid for services the
company never performed.

Prosecutors say the claims resulted in $83,000 worth of fraudulent
payments, which Strong used to buy a Mercedes and make a large cash
withdrawal from the company.

A sentencing date has not been set.
