VALDOSTA (WCTV Eyewitness News) – A Valdosta dentist has pleaded guilty to healthcare fraud, the U.S. Department of Justice reports.

55-year-old Dr. Stanley Marable, DDS, pleaded guilty to one count of health care fraud Friday.

Dr. Marable was charged after an investigation revealed he had overbilled the Georgia Medicaid program nearly $800,000 for tooth extractions he had not performed.

Dr. Marable faces a maximum sentence of ten years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and up to three years of supervised release.

The DOJ says as part of his plea agreement, Dr. Marable will pay more than $789,000 in restitution to the Georgia Medicaid Program.

Sentencing for Dr. Marable is scheduled for February 8, 2017.

    He should have set up a non-profit foundation to fund his defense, deleted his illegal billing records, told them he couldn’t recall any of these records while under oath, and then launch a huge personal slander program against the investigator and his family. This works very well in politics and keeps you out of jail.

  2. Frankly says:

    Rex , it is ppl such as you and Rex you should be extradited out of the country ! Crooks and criminals taking advantage of our country. I bet you kneel during the National Anthem.

  3. Let Me Tell Ya says:

    In Rebecca GA: We take his kind out to the woods for dental work – old school. (if ya get my drift)

    This would not be tolerated in Rebecca GA.

    I wouldn’t lie to ya. No, no I would not.

  4. Randy Horn says:

    I don’t believe Rex is condoning this, but rather drawing a comparison to what Hillary has done and gotten away with. We should all be kneeling to God during this election, because both scare me.
