Three 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.
