Aug 6 06:00 PM US/Eastern
NORWALK, Conn. (AP) - A 56-year-old woman who was honored at a 2008 dinner as the so-called Connecticut Nursing Association's "Nurse of the Year," was charged with pretending to be a nurse. Prosecutors said Betty Lichtenstein had been had been working in a doctor's office.

According to the arrest warrant, that association does not exist and Lichtenstein spent more than $2,000 of her own money to stage that dinner.

Inspectors from the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit began investigating after a patient complained about Lichtenstein.

She faces up to five years in prison if convicted of charges reckless endangerment and criminal impersonation.

Lichtenstein did not immediately return a telephone message for comment.
