VERNON, Conn. (WTNH) — A Hartford man is sentenced to 23 years in prison for sexual assault and fraud.
Jay Mohler-Avery pled guilty to sexually assaulting a child and other charges.
He is a nurse practitioner and owner of the Connecticut Family Care Center in Vernon.
Court paperwork shows, the fraud charge stems from an office visit in 2012. Medicaid says Mohler-Avery billed Medicaid, but used the appointment to try and to set up sexual activity with a child, not for medical purposes.
Once he gets out of prison, Mohler-Avery will be on special parole for another 20 years and will need to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
