LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Veterans Administration employee and 13
others have been charged with conspiring to steal nearly $2 million in disability claims.
U.S. Attorney David Huber said in a statement Thursday that Veterans Affairs service representative Jeffrey Allan McGill, 12 veterans and one civilian have been indicted.
A federal grand jury on Wednesday filed charges of conspiring to
defraud the United States of nearly $2 million through the submission of false disability claims to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
A phone message left for McGill was not immediately returned Thursday morning.
