DATE: March 9, 2017
CASE: Randnette F. Billings (Case #12F03169)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney John Pezone, Public Assistance Fraud Unit
Randnette Billings was convicted by a jury of felony welfare fraud, felony perjury, felony offering a false document at a legal proceeding, felony grand theft and felony offering a false claim for payment.
Billings was on public assistance from 2006 through 2010. She concealed the fact that she was working as an In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) provider, which led to a loss of approximately $54,000 dollars to the Department of Human Assistance (DHA). Billings committed perjury when she made the misrepresentation of her income. When DHA told her of the fraud, she requested a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. At the hearing, Billings offered a forged letter from the Sacramento Public Authority, which led to a decision in her favor. Investigation of the letter revealed it was a forgery, which led to a second hearing held by the county and a reversal in the initial decision.
Billings also committed grand theft of more than $2,000 from IHSS. Billings submitted a false claim for payment for alleged services she provided when her client was confined to a hospital and skilled nursing facility.
Billings faces a maximum sentence of 6 years county jail prison. Sentencing is set for April 7, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 31 before the Honorable Michael Kenny.
