For Immediate Release

Assistant Attorney General Philip Bradley
Attorney General Kelly A. Ayotte announces that Louri Russel Boilard, age 42, of Manchester, has been incarcerated for 12 months for violating the good behavior condition of her suspended sentence. Boilard received the suspended sentence following her conviction last year for Medicaid fraud.
In ordering Boilard incarcerated, the Court found that she had misrepresented her qualifications and credentials while promoting her resume writing and career coaching business, known as DistinctCareer by ResumeBrilliance, LLC. The Court specifically ruled that Boilard had falsely represented herself as a licensed psychologist, and that her conduct amounted to deceptive business practices.
The Medicaid fraud conviction resulted from a jury trial in Hillsborough County Superior Court in September of 2007. Boilard was found guilty of intentionally concealing the sale of her parents' property while they were receiving Medicaid benefits for nursing home care.
Attorney General Kelly Ayotte said: "Those who directly defraud consumers and those who engage in Medicaid fraud diminish the quality of life here in New Hampshire and increase both the cost of government and the cost of doing business between private parties. My Office will continue to actively investigate and vigorously prosecute those who engage in this type of illegal conduct."
