NORTHAMPTON, MA (WSHM) -

An Agawam man who worked as a personal care attendant has admitted to stealing more than $60,000 from the state's Medicaid program.

He's accused of submitting false time sheets to MassHealth indicating care for a patient while he was working as a bus driver at the Lower Pioneer Valley Educational Collaborative.

He was sentenced to five years probation.
