: "HOUSTON (Reuters) - The owner of a Texas medical supply company is charged with fraudulently billing the U.S. government for $1 million (696,475 pounds) in adult diapers that customers never received, federal prosecutors said on Friday.

Ernest Hogan, 59, who ran Shanet Medical Source in Houston, is accused by federal prosecutors of routinely billing the federal Medicaid program for adult urinary incontinence supplies, including diapers, underpads and pull-up briefs."
