LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — A Leavenworth physician has been convicted of defrauding the Medicaid program by billing for services he didn't perform and altering patients' records.

The attorney general's office said 71-year-old Adnan Ashkar pleaded no contest Wednesday to six felony counts in Leavenworth County District Court. He will be sentenced Oct. 22.

Ashkar was ordered as part of his plea agreement to immediately pay $12,000 in restitution to Kansas Medicaid program. He will also be barred from future participation in the program.

Prosecutors said the fraud went on from January 2009 to December 2013.
