Ed Henry, the disgraced and convicted former Alabama lawmaker, whose district included Allens Crossroads and Morgan City, was pardoned by President Trump Tuesday night.

Henry pleaded guilty in 2019 to Medicare fraud.

Prosecutors said doctors improperly waived co-payments for Medicare patients who enrolled in chronic pain management services provided by Henry’s company. Prosecutors said that meant Medicare paid for services patients did not need or would have otherwise refused.
