MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WHNT) – The Alabama Attorney General’s Office has dropped the Medicaid theft charges against Dr. Iqbal Memon.
A Montgomery County grand jury indicted Memon on the charges in June. He was charged with two counts of first-degree theft of property, a class B felony.
The Attorney General’s Office said the reason the charges were dropped is that they “do not have evidence that Dr. Memon received an overpayment in excess of $2,500 which is the amount to support a charge of first-degree theft. Therefore, we filed a motion on Sept. 4 to dismiss the indictment.”
Iqbal Memon also faces charges of hindering prosecution from 2012. Authorities say Memon tried to help his son, Hammad Memon, leave the country in 2012 to avoid prosecution in the Discovery Middle School case. Hammad Memon pleaded guilty to the murder of Todd Brown on May 28.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on October 25 with a jury trial starting on October 28.
