An Albany personal care aide admitted Monday to faking time sheets to defraud Medicaid out of more than $3,200, state Attorney General’s officials said.

Toya Croley, 38, of Albany, pleaded guilty Monday in Albany County Court to one count of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, a felony, officials said.

Croley admitted that she knowingly submitted false time sheets between October and November 2011.

Croley is to be sentenced in October to a total of 18 months to three years in state prison.

A case against a co-defendant remains pending. The co-defendant, Tara Colvin, 41, is accused of signing off on the in-home care for her brother when Croley never provided the care, officials said.

At the time of the thefts, Croley was still on probation or a previous welfare fraud conviction from 2007, officials said.
