United States v. Borrasi

United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit

639 F.3d 774 (7th Cir. 2011)

Facts

Roland Borrasi (defendant), owned a corporate group of healthcare providers, Integrated Health Centers, SC (Integrated). Borrasi formed relationships with the CEO, Wendy Mamoon (defendant); the director of operations, Mahmood Baig (defendant); and other officers and directors of Rock Creek Center, LP (Rock Creek). Borrasi, Mamoon, and Baig and others entered into an agreement to pay bribes to Borrasi and others at Integrated for Medicare patient referrals. Bribes totaling over $600,000 were paid to Borrasi and others at Integrated for referring patients to Rock Creek. As part of the scheme, Rock Creek placed Borrasi and other Integrated employees on the Rock Creek payroll. Rock Creek gave the sham employees fake titles and job descriptions, and the employees submitted false time sheets. None of the Integrated employees or Borrasi performed any duties or administrative tasks for Rock Creek. Rock Creek also made lease payments for one of Integrated’s offices. Borrasi, Mamoon, and Baig were indicted for six counts of Medicare fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C.§ 1320a-7b. Baig pleaded guilty. Borrasi and Mamoon were convicted on all counts at trial. Borrasi filed a motion for a new trial or, in the alternative, a judgment of acquittal. The district court denied the motion. Borrasi appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
