Fraud Doctor Gets 20 Months and $554,000 in Restitution in SDNY And Plans Appeal

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 8 – Asim Hameedi pled guilty to medical care fraud in a case dating back to 2017, but but in July 2020 had yet to be sentenced.

A so-called Fatico hearing to determine how much forfeiture he owes was scheduled for this month, but on July 8, 2020 his able lawyer argued that holding the hearing would be dangerous during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 In fact, his lawyer implied that he might not return to the courthouse until there is a vaccine.

Now apparently he has been - the sentencing took place on May 20, and Inner City Press covered it.

U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl imposed a sentence of 20 months with restitution of $554,000. The guideline, as stated, was 108 months.  This is not mentioned in the US Attorney's Office press release hours later.

It appears that there will be one or more appeals. Watch this site.

The case is US v. Hameedi, et al., 17-cr-137 (Koeltl)
