CARSON CITY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & 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.
