NORFOLK, Virginia — The owner of a Norfolk health care business has been sentenced to five years and three months in prison.

The Virginian-Pilot reports ( that 56-year-old W. Wayne Perry was sentenced Thursday in federal court. His wife, Angela Perry, was sentenced to two years and one month in prison.

A federal jury in September convicted the Perrys on 18 charges related to a $1.4 million Medicaid billing scheme. Assistant U.S. Attorney Melissa O'Boyle urged the judge to sentence Wayne Perry to 10 to 21 years in prison. She said Perry, the former owner of Community Personal Care Inc. and former vice rector at Norfolk State University, showed no remorse and blamed others for his wrongdoing.

Wayne Perry's attorney, Gray Broughton, called the sentencing guidelines "preposterous."
