Former local doctor sentenced

Posted: Updated:

A former Amarillo orthodontist has been sentenced to serve over four years in federal prison for medicaid fraud.

Michael Goodwin has also been ordered to pay $1.8 million in restitution for the hundreds of thousands of dollars in false medicaid claims he filed.

A federal judge says after Goodwin finishes serving his sentence, he'll also face three years of supervised release.

Goodwin will not be allowed to participate in the medicaid program as a dentist during that time.

He has to report to federal prison April 29th.
