BATON ROUGE - Federal prosecutors say a licensed clinical social worker has been sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for her role in a health care fraud scheme involving two companies that operated in the Alexandria area.

U.S. Attorney Walt Green said in a news release that 50-year-old Carla M. Clark, of Pineville, also was ordered Wednesday to pay more than $413,000 in restitution to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Green says the companies involved in the scheme were Fusion Services LLC and Grace Social Services LLC, both owned by Sonya Lewis Williams.

Williams, of Baton Rouge, was sentenced in 2013 to 37 months in prison for health care fraud and money laundering and ordered to pay more than $1.2 million in restitution.
