Financial coordinator in Houston guilty of fraud

A financial coordinator at a Houston clinic who used another person's name and Social Security number to get the job faces up to 25 years in prison for fraud.

Prosecutors say 36-year-old Simone Nicole Gary of Houston applied for financial grants for kidney dialysis patients and then kept the money.

Gary on Monday pleaded guilty to mail fraud and Social Security fraud in the nearly $66,000 scam. She's free on bond pending sentencing.

Prosecutors say Gary in 2010 used the credentials of someone else when she was hired by Fresenius Medical Care to handle patient finances.

Gary submitted bogus grant applications to a charitable group. The checks to pay for dialysis were mailed to the clinic in care of Gary, who forged signatures of patients and stole the money.
