Barren County Treatment Center Administrator Indicted

A former co-owner of a mental health treatment center in Barren County is facing theft and fraud charges. 

According to the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office, 36-year-old Jeremy Catron was indicted last month.

He’s accused of defrauding  Medicaid by billing the program for therapy services he did not perform.

Prosecutors claim he stole more than $10,000 from the state’s Medicaid program. 

Catron formerly co-owned Alliance Counseling Associates.

He pleaded not guilty Monday in Barren Circuit Court. If convicted, Catron faces up to 15 years in prison.

A pre-trial hearing was set for April 28.
