Posted on November 21st, 2011 No Comments

The Christian summer camp in Cape Cod, Camp Good News, was set to re-open this week after sexual allegations had caused the camp to shut it’s doors for the summer. Now, another victim has come forward claiming that he was also abused at the camp when he was a child.

The newest victim to step forward claims that he was molested while attending the camp at the age of 8. He states that he was sexually abused and beaten regularly while he was there.

At the time of the assault the victim told his father, who confronted the camp. The camp officials claimed that they had fired the individual, when in reality they had not, and that is the only reason why no further charges were pressed. The alleged molester died in 2009.

The investigation into these allegations as well as the other allegations is still ongoing.

14 year sentence given in Medicare fraud case

Posted on November 7th, 2011 No Comments

A Medicare fraud scheme has been uncovered in Detroit, Michigan with the ringleaders being two sisters. The women, who were at one point immigrants from Cuba, were sentenced to 14 years each for their part in the scheme.

The fraud began in Miami, Florida where the women were running a HIV-based clinic. They then moved their practice to Detroit, Michigan where they paid off black men in the area who had HIV and were eligible to receive HIV services through Medicare. The woman scammed the system out of more than $6 million.

They fled the country in 2007 and were ultimately discovered hiding out in Venezuela before they were taken into custody. The judge in the case gave each of them five years longer in prison than the original plea bargain outlined. They will each spend 14 years in prison and have been ordered to pay Medicare the $3.6 million that they personally gained from the scheme.

If you are currently facing Medicare fraud charges, please contact the Cape Cod Medicare Fraud Defense Attorney, James Powderly by calling 508-343-0676 today.
