A Norway woman who cheated taxpayers out of about $4 million in Medicare money is out of jail after about a year and a half.
This is after being originally sentenced to three and a half years behind bars.
Dawn Solomon is now on "supervised community confinement," which basically means she cannot leave town without permission of her parole officer.
Solomon admitted to over-billing, submitting false reports to the state for reimbursement through LINC, the Living Independence Network Corp.
Solomon was living large at taxpayers' expense, paying herself an average of $87,000 per month.
No, not per year — $87,000 per month — or more than $1 million per year on average.
Solomon has been ordered to find a job and start paying the money back.
We hope the court is more diligent about the reimbursement requirement than it was keeping Solomon behind bars.
