Alexis C. Norman, from Midlothian, Texas, and her co-conspirator, Karen Jones, created a fake business in Tyler, Texas and used stolen identities of licensed counselors and Medicaid recipients to submit false claims to Medicaid. 
Norman pleaded guilty and went to prison in April 2016.  Apparently, she and her cohort, Jones, didn’t stop there.  They created another fake company in Waco, and Norman supplied Jones with more stolen counselor and Medicaid patient identities from prisonby hiding pieces of paper in her shoe to give to Jones during visits.   Her motivation for continuing the criminal activity?  She needed to pay her criminal defense lawyer.
Meanwhile, in Dallas, Texas workers’ compensation claimants’ lawyer, Royce Bicklein, is scheduled for trial in federal court on February 19, 2019.  Bicklein was named in a federal court indictment concerning the Forest Park Medical Center and allegations against 21 people and involving over $40 million in alleged bribes and kickbacks.
