COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A Bishopville dentist has pleaded guilty to submitting about $800,000 in fraudulent Medicaid claims.

The State newspaper reported Friday that Dr. C. Lynwood Bramlett pleaded guilty in Circuit Court in Columbia.

Bramlett was accused of submitting claims for children's dental procedures that were never performed.

Circuit Court Judge Casey Manning placed Bramlett on probation for one year and ordered him to perform 150 hours of community service. Manning also fined Bramlett $50,000 and ordered him to repay the $800,000.

A spokesman for the attorney general's office says Bramlett has repaid the money.

Prosecutors say the false claims were filed between 2008 and 2010.
