Fraud Lawyer in Parsippany NJThree NY doctors have been sentenced to hard time in prison for their roles in a medical testing scam that involved a laboratory in Parsippany, NJ.

The suspects include a 45-year-old Staten Island, New York man, a 49-year-old Staten Island, NY man, and a 45-year-old Scarsdale man.

All of the suspects were sentenced to 2-3 years in federal prison after they pleaded guilty to criminal charges for bribery. The suspects would have been subject to much longer terms of incarcerations if they had fought the charges and gone to trial in U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey.

According to authorities, the suspects, and many others, accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars as bribes to ensure that valuable blood-testing work was sent to the Parsippany medical lab.

Several other doctors implicated in the fraud scheme have already been convicted and sentenced to prison as well.

Parsippany NJ Theft Crime LawyersParsippany New Jersey police recently arrested an Elizabeth NJ woman who allegedly committed check fraud and stole $40,000 from her boss.

According to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, the suspect committed the fraud crimes over six-month period that lasted from April 2015 to October 2015.

Boonton Township NJ Theft SuspectBoonton Township NJ police are investigating a recent car burglary incident at a local park.

According to Morris County authorities, the car break-in was committed sometime between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on July 15, 2016. The victim parked his vehicle at Tourne County Park in Boonton Township, NJ. While the victim walked around the park, the suspects reportedly gained access to his car by breaking a door lock. Once the suspects got inside the vehicle, they allegedly stole a wallet containing a total of $60 in cash, as well as two personal credit cards.

Morris County Park police and Boonton Township NJ law enforcement investigated the burglary and theft and were able to track the stolen credit cards. On the same day as the theft, two suspects allegedly attempted to use the stolen credit cards at two retail stores: Macy’s and the Gap at the Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, New Jersey.

Rockaway NJ Theft by Deception LawyersThe former vice president of a Rockaway New Jersey soccer club managed to stay out of prison after pleading guilty to the theft of more than $17,000 in funds from the soccer organization.

According to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, the suspect committed the theft by deception over a four-year period, from April 2011 to July 2015. When he committed the theft, the suspect was the vice president of the Rockaway Boro Rowdies Soccer Club, an organization that gives local children a chance to play soccer. The suspect was also a member of the Rockaway Parks and Recreation Committee.

The Rockaway Borough Police Department started to investigate the suspect after someone associated with the soccer club said that there had been a number of unauthorized withdrawals from the club’s bank account.

Rockaway police officers looked into the allegations and learned that the suspect withdrew the funds and then used the money for his own personal expenses.

Rockaway NJ police handed over the investigation to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, which later brought criminal charges against the suspect for theft by deception.

The suspect later reached a deal with prosecutors that allowed him to avoid incarceration. The suspect was granted admission into the Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) program. This is a diversionary program that allows first-time, non-violent offenders to complete a probationary period instead of being sentenced to prison.

The suspect’s deal with prosecutors will require him to pay restitution to the soccer club in the amount of the stolen funds: $17,185.26. The suspect has already made a payment of $6,500 and will continue to make monthly payments of $305.

The suspect recently made an appearance in Somerset County Superior Court for a formal sentencing hearing.

After the sentence was handed down by the superior court judge, the acting attorney general and prosecutor for the New Jersey Office of Insurance Fraud said that the suspect was getting justice because she “duped trusting investors into believe she had their best interests in mind when all she really cared about was stealing their money to enrich her own financial well-being.”
