Money talks.

BENTON, IL (AP) — A southern Illinois dentist has been ordered to spend one year and a day in federal prison for defrauding Medicaid and illegally distributing a prescription painkiller.

Sixty-year-old Walter Dawkins of Fairfield was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Benton.

Dawkins pleaded guilty in September to felony counts of fraud involving a health-care program and unlawfully distributing the controlled substance hydrocodone.

Federal prosecutors say the offenses involved hundreds of prescriptions written outside the course of Dawkins' medical practice.

Dawkins also was sentenced to a $900 fine and three years of post-prison supervised release. He also must reimburse the Illinois Medicaid program.
