Albuquerque, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas announced the successful
prosecution of Edward Boysel who fraudulently operated a concealed firearms training business
while failing to report his income and unlawfully receiving state benefits.
“For many, Medicaid and state benefits mean the difference between life and death, said
Attorney General Hector Balderas, “my office aggressively prosecutes offenders who harm our
most vulnerable New Mexicans by taking advantage of the system.”
Boysel pleaded guilty to five felony counts including Money Laundering, Tax Fraud, Medicaid
Fraud, Falsification of Documents, and Failing to Disclose Facts to Obtain Public Assistance.
Boysel faces between one and four years in the New Mexico Department of Corrections, and will
be required to pay restitution.
