James Fincham, Jr., has been setenced to three years in prison for lying about his health to the tune of more than $18,000. Monday’s sentence was for two counts of Medicaid fraud, two counts of obtaining money by false pretense, and one count of burglary. Between March of 2012 and May of last year, the Orange resident greatly exaggerated a supposedly debilitating medical condition. As a result, he was able to hire personal care aides who joined him in scheme of falsified time sheets and extra money for both Fincham and the aides he hired to help him. The whole time, Fincham was largely able to perform normal activities such as driving and holding a job. One of the case’s investigators was able to link him to an unresolved burglery in the Town of Louisa, leading to an arrest for that crime, as well.
