New York: An Indian-American physiotherapist has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay over USD 10 million in restitution for his role in a multi- million dollar healthcare fraud and money laundering scheme.
Chiradeep Gupta, 39, of Michigan was sentenced by US District Judge Denise Page Hood in the Eastern District of Michigan.
In addition to the 120 months prison term, Gupta was sentenced to serve three years of supervised release and was ordered to pay more than USD 10 million in restitution, jointly and severally with his co-defendants, Acting Assistant Attorney General Mythili Raman of the Justice Department`s Criminal Division said in a statement yesterday.
