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.
