Garden City attorney accused of fraud

An attorney from Garden City has been accused of committing a Medicaid fraud scheme.



Prosecutors say Anthony Cornachio gave kickbacks to two Brooklyn housing operators who forced residents to attend Cornachio's Medicaid-enrolled drug treatment programs.



They say residents were allegedly threatened with eviction if they didn't comply.



Prosecutors say Cornachio then submitted reimbursement claims of up to $1.7 million.
