CARSON CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The former director of a Carson City counseling center is now under arrest facing charges of Medicaid fraud.

Erik Badgett is currently in custody at the Lyon County Jail. An arrest warrant was issued after the Attorney General charged Badgett with several counts of Medicaid fraud, though he was actually arrested on an unrelated case in Lyon County.

Last year, the Attorney General's office raided the Family Guidance and Wellness Network in Carson City, where Badgett was employed as the director.

Several employees and patients have also come forward accusing Badgett of lewdness and sexual assault. The Carson City District Attorney has decided not to pursue those charges at this time.

He is due in court September 3, 2014.

If all of the "corruption" is true, then the sexual assault victims need to request that the Nevada Division of Investigation take over their complaints and handle them accordingly. They have a right to be heard, maybe they need to request a different court venue handle this out of the area of Carson City.

Notice how the Carson City newspaper fails to print any news on this? They cover up the corruption in Carson City (Sheriff, DA, court, judge Tatro) and only print "good news". They are such scum and paid off wimps.

Did you know DA Neil Rombardo had an "affair" with his deputy DA? Just google 'Neil Rombardo divorce'... Then Google Judge Tatro who has an affair with a court clerk and got his door shot. The scandals in Carson City never stop.

The Carson City DA is very, very corrupt. The don't prosecute cases when their "friends" are in trouble. Look at judge Tatro,a child molester, the DA and him are a major "conflict-of-interest"... Tatro is also a drunk who needs to breathalyze every day before taking the bench.

Very good point! Just proves once again that money is more important than people.

why would the DA choose not to pursue the charges of sexual assault and lewdness with employees and patients? That just leaves those victims hanging and it seems the courts are only interested in the money fraud for Medicaid. Those victims being ignored need to demand that their case be heard also.
