All this and he gets only one year in prison. Maybe the judge should be in the same cell.

Let me see if I have this correctÂ…Â…This douche committed income tax evasion, insurance fraud, Medicare/Medicaid fraud, money laundering, and on top of that he was a POS drug pusher. He only gets 1 year in a federal camp and he gets to keep his medical license.

Seems to me that 20 years smacking his monkey in USP Lewisburg, followed by deportation would be a more just sentence!

So the article states that he is the 3rd highest prescriber of oxycotin. I wonder how many addicts he is responsible for?? I wonder if anyone has OD'D? He still gets to keep his license.??..Stealing from the government and only receives that terrible one year of jail time. Poor Man.

He's probably got even more money stashed somewhere, just waiting for him when he gets out.

Who does he think he is that he can come to the USA and defraud the insurance companies, the government and the HARD WORKING AMERICANS!!!!! He should be deported, stripped of any citizenship he was granted, and never let back in to our country.

Send his ass back to India with the rest of the scum from that lousy country. India has a formal caste system and the highest number of modern-day slaves in the world. Indians are scum.

The borders are open to all you people who think you have it rough in this great country. Go live elsewhere and you will find that the USA is a great place to live. Why do you think all of the Mexican, Asians and India people are coming here?

If you can afford to live in Powell after taxes, you should not be cheating on your taxes. Wealth is wasted on the greedy.

The only people who defrauded Americans is our Government. Government Sachs. The Feds, The IRS the Banks They are the ones who stole and defrauded the American Public. As For addiction, that is YOUR choice. Don't blame someone else for your weakness. I don't believe there is one elected or appointed government official who is not corrupt.

People who can afford to live in Powell do pay their taxes...and a hell of a lot more than most people in America do. That guy does not represent the people of Powell.

Most wealthy people are not greedy at all. They are, by far, the largest block of Americans who generously donate to charity and the highest percentage of people who pay all of their taxes.

NOTED POWELL EXCEPTION: State Rep. Andy Brenner and his wife Powell City Council Member Sara Marie Brenner (SMB)...they are tax cheaters. They owe the Feds over $40K in unpaid employee tax withholdings. Their titles do not give them any clout in this town. We all know they are tax cheaters. SMB isn't even going to run for another term because she is so despised in our little town. Now if only the rest of Andy's district knew what we know...
