Idaho Counselor Sentenced To 30 Days In Jail & Two Years Probation After Attending Kottonmouth Kings Concert With Patients

Earlier this week it was reported that an Idaho counselor was sentenced to 30 days in jail and received two years probation after taking two boys enrolled in the the Idaho Medicaid program to a Kottonmouth Kings concert. The counselor had billed for services and was later convicted of one count of Medicaid provider fraud. The Idaho Medicaid is a tax supported program that provides health care services to more than 200,000 vulnerable Idaho citizens who are poor, elderly or disabled.

 

"I think that it was a hands on approach to some serious field research and sometimes you need to find creative ways to connect with your subjects or students," commented Brad X from Kottonmouth Kings upon hearing the news of the incident. "I think if you researched every medical facility in the country you would find that they all bilk the insurance and Medicare for thousands monthly if not millions. I think they should send all of their patients to Kottonmouth Kings shows or at least insist they buy our records or a t-shirt,” he laughed jokingly. “We’re going to be back in Spokane on this upcoming tour in November, so we’d like to offer some free tickets and passes to the counselor to come to the show and enjoy some positive vibes.”

 

The Kottonmouth Kings will kick off the second leg of their Party Monsters Tour alongside Big B and Slaine on November 13th in Hollywood, CA at The Key Club. Kottonmouth Kings are currently touring in support of their new album, “Long Live The Kings”, which debuted at #26 on the Billboard Top 200.
