BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell says a personal care attendant from New Orleans and one from Bastrop have been booked with unrelated charges of Medicaid fraud.

He says both 23-year-old Lakeiqua Green of New Orleans and 31-year-old Jolonda Huff of Bastrop are accused of submitting time-sheets claiming they cared for Medicaid patients at home when the patients were really hospitalized.

Caldwell says both were booked Monday into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
