ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Jury selection began Tuesday in the Medicaid fraud trial of a Mitchell County pharmacist.

J. Harris Morgan, Jr. Is being tried in Albany Federal Court. He's accused of submitting nearly a half million dollars worth of fraudulent Medicaid claims through Thrift Center Pharmacy and Option Care in Camilla. Prosecutors will attempt to prove the claims were for a drug called Synagis, used to treat children with respiratory problems.

Prosecutors say the false claims were filed over eight years and totaled more than $419,000.
