By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A local dentist is facing charges, accused of Medicaid fraud.

Dr. James Deyulio was doing work out of a local nursing home where the alleged fraud took place. According to the New York State Attorney General's Office, Deyulio is now charged with grand larceny.

He pleaded not-guilty to those charges in Oneida County Court on Tuesday, where the Oneida County District Attorney's Office offered him a plea deal.

Deyulio will return to Oneida County Court on January 6 to let the judge know whether he will accept or reject the plea offer.

The charges stem from work he did at a local nursing home, but authorities will not say which nursing home he was working at.
