jack conway 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (5/15/14) — Attorney General Jack Conway and his Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit today announced the indictment and arraignment of a Paducah, Ky. man charged with one count of reckless homicide.

A Graves County grand jury indicted 53-year-old Alan Warner April 10. Warner was arraigned May 12 in Graves Circuit Court.

Alan Warner is a former caregiver at a Community Alternatives Medicaid-funded facility in Hickory, Ky. Warner’s indictment is the result of an investigation initiated by Attorney General Conway’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit in 2012 following the suspicious death of a Community Alternatives resident. While caring for the resident, Warner is alleged to have acted recklessly in failing to follow his training and improperly treating the resident when the resident lost consciousness, eventually resulting in the resident’s death.

This case will be prosecuted by General Conway’s Medicaid Control and Abuse Unit. If convicted, Warner faces up to five years in prison.

A charge is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Citizens are urged to report suspected fraud or elder abuse by calling the Attorney General’s tip line at (877) ABUSE TIP (877) 228-7384). You can follow Attorney General Conway on Twitter @kyoag or visit the Attorney General’s Facebook page.
