Benton man indicted by federal grand jury with defrauding former employer

A Benton man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Benton charging him with defrauding his former employer – Southern Illinois Healthcare. According to court records, during the time-period covered by the indictment, 48-year-old Cary E. Mosley was employed as the Manager of SIH’s Radiation Oncology Department.

During that same time-frame, Mosley had a second job with Q.E.D. Medical Physics, Inc., which is based in Lebanon, Tennessee. Q.E.D. is a contractor that provides support services for radiation oncology departments operated by smaller hospitals. The indictment further alleges that Mosley concealed his fraud scheme by altering the documents that were sent to SIH’s Accounts Payable Department in support of the Q.E.D. invoices.

Each month, Q.E.D. sent to SIH an “Hours and Details” sheet, which identified the Q.E.D. employees who had worked at SIH, the work they had performed, the number of hours they had worked, and the dates they had worked. During the initial portion of his scheme, Mosley altered the “Hours and Details” sheets by removing his name and inserting the names of other Q.E.D. employees. The latter portion of his scheme, Mosley simply discarded the “Hours and Details” sheets before the Q.E.D invoices were sent to SIH’s Accounts Payable Department.

Mosley allegedly conducted his fraud scheme from December 2006 through July 2013, and that he was paid over $500,000 by Q.E.D for work he allegedly performed at SIH.

Each of the mail and wire fraud counts carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison, up to three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000. In addition, Mosley could be ordered to pay full restitution to SIH. Mosley is scheduled to be arraigned on the indictment on Jan. 16 at 2 p.m. at the Federal Courthouse in Benton.
