MONTPELIER, Vt. - A Vermont woman is accused of falsely obtaining money from Vermont's medicaid program.

A press release says Ashley Martin, of St. Albans, Vt., forged signatures on time sheets she submitted for care that was not provided to a vulnerable adult enrolled in Vermont's Developmental Disability Services program.

Martin was sentenced to one to three years in jail and probation subject to special conditions. A press release says some of those conditions may include 60 hours of community service,  not being able to work as a home-based care provider, or under a Medicaid waiver program. 

Martin was also ordered to pay $11,000 in restitution to the Vermont medicaid program.
