BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury has indicted a Hammond couple on tax evasion charges in connection with a business they ran that got Medicaid funds.
The Louisiana Department of Revenue reported Tuesday that Cassandra N. Dangerfield and Eric Dangerfield were indicted on felony tax evasion charges.
The indictment accuses the Dangerfields of filing false or fraudulent tax returns to avoid paying taxes on income from 1st Thessalonians Community Programs Inc. in 2008 and 2009.
The business was owned by Cassandra Dangerfield and funded by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals through the Louisiana Medicaid Program.
In February, the grand jury handed up indictments against the couple for Medicaid fraud charges related to the same business.
