Nose Doctor Argues He's Spent Enough Time In Jail
HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) - A former northwestern Indiana nose surgeon who spent five years on the run from fraud charges is arguing he's served enough time in prison even before being sentenced.
Attorneys for Mark Weinberger say in federal court filings that he's spent 34 months in prison, which falls in the sentencing guideline range of 30 months to 37 months.
Weinberger faces a court hearing Friday during which a judge could decide whether to accept his guilty plea on charges for billing insurance companies for procedures that weren't needed or never performed.
The Post-Tribune reports prosecutors have asked for a sentence of about four years.
Such a sentence would likely mean little additional prison time for Weinberger. He disappeared during a 2004 trip to Greece and was captured in Italy in 2009.
