Unhinged text messages from individual claiming to be felony Medicaid and Identity fraud suspect
Updated: Dec 2, 2020
Today in Fort Smith received a series of erratic, profane and often illiterate texts today from an individual purporting to be failed NWA pediatric clinic owner and Medicaid and Identity Fraud suspect Anthony Christopher, who has been the subject of a number of stories on our website in the past twenty months.
(READER WARNING....Although we have heavily redacted the screenshots of the texts, there is still language in some of the screenshots that may not be suitable for all audiences.)
Here are the redacted screenshots:
(Editors note: These are neither most impressive or vilifying screenshots we have ever received, and whether or not they come from Christopher we have no way of knowing. But whoever this person is they need to consult a mental health specialist (soon) and also take a basic course in capitalization and punctuation.)
However, as we have done in the past we welcome any and all lawsuits by this person--or Christopher--because publication of facts and the truth is a suitable defense against frivolous slander and/or libel. lawsuits.
I would refer to this screenshot again:
As you can see here, Christopher is due in court this Thursday for a plea and arraignment hearing on his felony Medicaid and Identity charges from the state of Arkansas.
Christopher faces two Class D felony charges for Financial or Non-Financial Identity Fraud that occurred on May 1, 2017 and May 1, 2018. He also faces a Class A Felony for Medicaid Fraud that occurred on December 1, 2017. The charges were filed Wednesday, August 26th, 2020 in Pulaski County Circuit Court.
Class D felonies are the least serious felonies in Arkansas, punishable by up to six years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Class A felonies in Arkansas are punishable by six to 30 years' imprisonment and a fine of up to $15,000.
