Sarah Sarder, Breaking News Reporter. A Midlothian woman admitted Thursday to defrauding Medicaid while she was behind bars awaiting sentencing for a previous fraud scheme, authorities said. Alexis C. Norman, 47, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and four counts of health care fraud. One of those instances occurred while Norman was in prison, according to the Department of Justice. Prosecutors say Norman had help from co-conspirator Karen Jones to execute the fraud, which involved elaborate schemes to avoid detection. Norman initially recruited Jones in February 2015 with the idea for the crimes, in which officials say Jones set up multiple false medical companies to collect money for fake Medicaid claims. The first company Jones created was named Janus Children Services Inc., a false operation that leased office space in Tyler but had no employees or services.
