Medical Device Inventor Turned Fraudster Laura Perryman Gets 6 Years Amid Appeal Vow

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 17 – A six year prison sentence was imposed on June 17 on Laura Perryman after at trial she was  convicted in connection with a health care fraud scheme whereby the defendant created and sold a fake medical device component and told doctors that they could claim approximately $18,000 for implanting the fake component into patients.  

Inner City Press was present during the trial, and at sentencing before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Denise L. Cote, who said Perryman was an investor who turned to fraud - then tried to blame her young employees. Perryman sobbed. 

 After the sentence was announced Perryman's lawyer asked for bail pending appeal. Judge Cote said she did not think she would grant it but set a briefing schedule.

Defense counsel worried that she would lose jurisdiction after the notice of appeal is filed. So his brief is due on June 19, Juneteenth.

  The case is US v. Perryman, 23-cr-117 (Cote)
