LUBBOCK, Texas - (AP) - A San Antonio man has pleaded guilty to a mail fraud charge in connection with a scheme that cost University Medical Center in Lubbock almost $700,000.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal (http://bit.ly/18fJZwX ) reports that 40-year-old Rodolfo Reyes "Rudy" Mata told a federal judge Friday that he conspired with a hospital vice president, Robert Gregory Bruce, to submit false bills to the hospital between June 2007 and December 2011.
Bruce, 46, resigned in December 2011 when an internal audit uncovered the losses. He pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud last month.
Bruce and Mata each face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
