Health Care Fraud; Aiding and Abetting, Causing an Act to be Done, in violation of Title 18 U.S.C. §§ 1347, 2 as charged in counts two through six of the indictment.
The Court asked whether defendant had anything to say why judgment should not be pronounced. Because no sufficient cause to the contrary was shown, or appeared to the Court, the Court adjudged the defendant guilty as charged and convicted and ordered that:
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $600, which is due immediately.
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $1,770,319.42.
The amount of restitution ordered shall be paid as set forth in the confidential victim list attached to the Pre-Sentence Report. If the defendant makes a partial payment, each payee shall receive approximately proportional payment unless another priority order or percentage payment is specified in this judgment.
A partial payment of at least $500 shall be paid no later than 60 days from the date of sentencing. The balance of the restitution shall be due during the period of imprisonment, at the rate of not less than $25 per quarter, and pursuant to the Bureau of Prisons' Inmate Financial Responsibility Program. If any amount of the restitution remains unpaid after release from custody, nominal monthly payments of at least $100 shall be made during the period of supervised release. These payments shall begin 30 days after the commencement of supervision. Nominal restitution payments are ordered as the court finds that the defendant's economic circumstances do not allow for either immediate or future payment of the amount ordered.
