A former top Wayne County official has received a 7 year prison sentence for his role in what federal prosecutors say was a $400,000 health care fraud scheme.
 
Forty-two-year-old Michael Grundy was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit after pleading guilty in June 2013.
 
The U.S. attorney's office says that Grundy had a contractor inflate invoices and pass him the cash.
 
In his guilty plea, Grundy admits that he had the accountant of the health insurer HealthChoice of Michigan fraudulently transfer $400,000 to another company. Grundy was an assistant county executive and was executive director of HealthChoice of Michigan.
 
Co-conspirator Keith Griffin of Carmel, Indiana, also has pleaded guilty.
