ALBUQUERQUE Attorney General Hector Balderas announced Thursday the successful prosecution of Edward Boysel who fraudulently operated a concealed firearms training business while failing to report his income and unlawfully receiving state benefits.
“For many, Medicaid and state benefits mean the difference between life and death," Balderas said. “My office aggressively prosecutes offenders who harm our most vulnerable New Mexicans by taking advantage of the system.”
Boysel pleaded guilty to five felony counts including:
  • Money Laundering;
  • Tax Fraud;
  • Medicaid Fraud;
  • Falsification of Documents; and
  • Failing to Disclose Facts to Obtain Public Assistance.
Boysel faces between one and four years in the New Mexico Department of Corrections, and will be required to pay restitution.
