(Miami Herald) Gregory Campbell, the son of Miami Democratic state Rep. Daphne Campbell, was convicted by a jury Friday in a nearly $300,000 Medicaid-fraud scheme.

Campbell, 29, faces a maximum of 45 years in prison for the multiple fraud and conspiracy charges.

“We will not allow these criminals to defraud the Medicaid program, a program funded by taxpayer dollars and intended to help people in-need,” Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a written statement.

“My Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and Office of Statewide Prosecution will remain relentless in their efforts to pursue Medicaid fraud and hold wrongdoers accountable,” Bondi said.
