Los Gatos chiropractor to serve two years in prison for insurance fraud
Robert Arnold Demarco, a 42-year-old chiropractor was convicted of defrauding insurance companies of more than $250,000 by over billing for services he didn’t perform.
The Los Gatos Chiropractor was sentenced to two years in state prison by Santa Clara Superior Court after pleading guilty to one count of felony grand theft in California and one count of false insurance claim. Along with the prison sentence, which began on Monday November 3, 2008, the conviction instigated an investigation by the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners which could ultimately revoke Demarco’s chiropractic license.
The two year prison sentence for the insurance fraud, prosecutors say, came due to the amount of money that was involved and Demarco’s refusal to pay back the money. Regardless, the two year sentence is a very steep one for this crime and may raise eyebrows as to what kind of work Demarco’s defense lawyer did. With proper legal representation, one always has the best shot at (1) freedom and at very worst a fair and thorough trial and sentence. Unfortunately for Demarco it does not seem that his defense attorneys did all they could as he is serving prison time.
