United States v. Njoku, et al., No. 12-20095 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Defendants appealed their convictions on numerous counts related to their involvement in schemes to commit health care fraud, receive or pay healthcare kickbacks, and/or make false statements for use in determining rights for benefit and payment by Medicare. The district court's oral pronouncement of Defendant Njoku's sentence on Count 2 was 60 months' imprisonment but the written judgment provided for a sentence of 63 months. Accordingly, the court remanded to the district court to amend Njoku's written judgment to conform to her oral sentence. The court affirmed the district court's judgment in all other respects.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on January 20, 2014.
