California Doctor's Scam
Posted Friday, May 17th 2013 @ 5pm  by KFBK News

A California doctor has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for cheating her patients out of more than $1 million by promising that an herbal supplement could cure late-stage cancer and other diseases. In U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, 58-year-old Christine Daniel was also ordered to pay about $1.3 million. Prosecutors say Daniel charged patients as much as $100,000 for a six-month treatment program. Some of her patients died within three months.
