Chiropractor Reportedly Agrees to Plea Deal Over Federal Charges

Home|Blog|Criminal Defense|Chiropractor Reportedly Agrees to Plea Deal Over Federal Charges

There are many types of crimes with which people are charged. Although they might not receive as much attention as violent crimes, some of the most serious types of crimes are white-collar crimes. They often involve felony charges and they are typically handled on a federal level. That means the stakes are usually higher and the penalties are generally more severe. That is why it’s so important to have an aggressive and knowledgeable attorney fighting for you if you have been charged with a federal white-collar crime.

An Ohio chiropractor could be facing some serious penalties if he is convicted of the federal fraud charges he is facing. According to reports, the man has apparently already agreed to plead guilty in federal court of charges that he cheated insurance companies out of nearly $700,000 over a four-year period. The alleged crimes took place between 2009 and 2012. The doctor is accused of overbilling insurance companies and charging them for services that were not reimbursable. According to court documents, the chiropractor also allegedly billed the companies for services that he did not perform and billed them for the same services twice.

The doctor is accused of stealing $696,373 from insurance companies. If convicted he could be ordered to pay as much as $250,000 in fines and have to spend up to 10 years behind bars. At the time of this report, the terms of any possible plea deal were not reported and the state chiropractor board had not said whether or not it was looking into the matter. However, if the doctor does plead guilty to the felony fraud charges a board spokesperson noted that such a plea would be enough cause to trigger disciplinary action.

Any type of criminal charges are serious but federal felony charges often carry much stiffer penalties than many other types of crimes. While the evidence against this doctor appears very damaging, if the reports are accurate and he does plead guilty then perhaps he will get a reduced sentence. If you are facing similar types of charges as this man, then you need to meet with a criminal defense attorney as soon as you can. Before you except a plea deal you should discuss the situation with an experienced criminal lawyer. At the VanNoy Firm we represent you and your best interests.
