Attorney and SALEM Talk KTKZ-A/SACRAMENTO SUNDAY morning "SENIOR CARE ADVOCATES" host JAMES WALKER is paying an up to $275,000 fine in a settlement with the CALIFORNIA Attorney General over allegations that he helped seniors file false claims to collect MEDI-CAL benefits, reports the SACRAMENTO BEE.
The Attorney General's office investigated WALKER for four years and reached the settlement, requiring WALKER to pay the fine, change his business practices, and clearly separate his law and consulting businesses. In exchange, the state did not file criminal charges; WALKER did not admit to any wrongdoing and said he agreed to the deal to avoid further legal action.
