A man accused of scamming medical centers has pleaded guilty to fraud charges.

Larry D. Butler, 49, pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud that took place from July 2013 to August 2014.

According to the court, Butler scammed the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center and the Louisiana Health Cooperative out of over $70,000.

Butler admitted that he used false information and a fake social security number along with other false documentation to hide his criminal history from the victims.

Prosecutors also said that Butler used company credit cards for personal expenses.

Butler has agreed to forfeit the money he made through the fraud, and his sentencing will come at a later date.
