TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma attorney general charged a woman with Medicaid fraud for reportedly billing for services that were never provided.

Tuesday, Attorney General Scott Pruitt charged 33-year-old Mavis Floydneka Owens one count of Medicaid fraud and one count of obtaining property by deception.

According to a news release, Owens was an in-home health care provider for an elderly stroke victim until November 1, 2013 when she was reportedly fired by the patient and replaced.

However, Owens continued to electronically submit timesheets through the end of December of that year, according to the release, which resulted in a loss of $2,623 in Medicaid costs.

If convicted, Owens could face up to three years in prison and fines up to $10,000 for the first count and up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $5,000 for the second count.
