Cleveland doctor pleads guilty to defrauding Medicare

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - On Friday, Dr. Raymond Sean Brown, 44, of McDonald, TN., pleaded guilty to using misbranded drugs with the intent to defraud Medicare.  

Brown was initially charged in a 35-count indictment alleging crimes involving wire fraud, mail fraud, health care fraud and money laundering.  

However, Brown ultimately agreed to plead guilty to an information charging him with the use of misbranded drugs with the intent to defraud.  

As part of the plea agreement, Brown also agreed to forfeit $6.765 million U.S. currency seized from his bank accounts in December 2012, and pay an additional $717,000 in cash.  

Brown's sentencing is set for March 5, 2015, in  U.S. District Court in Chattanooga, at which time the United States will move to dismiss the original indictment. 

Brown faces a term of up to three years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 or twice the amount of the gross pecuniary gain, and supervised release of up to one year.
