Renita McLendon was indicted Wednesday on five charges involving identity fraud charged with running up thousands of dollars of medical care bills at Phoebe Putney hospital.
Prosecutors say in February McLendon used a stolen driver's license belonging to Ether Davis, to get treatment at the hospital after she was hit by a car.
"As alleged she just didn't want to pay the bill. And went and created this identity using the other person's information and went from there," said Greg Edwards, Dougherty D. A.
The District Attorney says his office prosecutes a lot of identity fraud cases, but not often at the hospital for receiving medical care.
If convicted, McLendon could face up to a maximum of 25 years in prison.
