TULSA – The former oral surgeon accused of potentially exposing patients to HIV entered a guilty plea regarding charges of money laundering.

Wayne Scott Harrington pleaded guilty this week after being charged with laundering around $15,000 in fraudulent billing to Medicaid and Medicare

Official documents filed by the US Attorney’s Office claim that Harrington used “controlled the funds for his personal benefit,” between January 2012 to June 2012.  

According to the official documents, if convicted, Harrington will be forced to forfeit any items purchased in the amount of nearly $30,000.

In August 2014, Harrington surrendered his dentistry license after investigators were notified that one of his patients contracted hepatitis C in March 2013.  It was ultimately traced back to Harrington.
