Obstruction of Justice in Health Care Cases
Orlando Fraud Defense Attorneys
Investigations of healthcare fraud often involve auditing financial and billing records of doctors, dentists, HMOs, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals. Unfortunately, people who are under investigation for healthcare fraud often over-react and may destroy patient, financial, billing, and office records. Doing so, however, can result in an obstruction of justice charge.
At the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., our Orlando criminal defense attorneys work closely with clients under investigation or indictment for healthcare fraud to prevent and avoid acts or conduct that would result in obstruction of justice charges. When we are contacted and involved in an investigation early on, we can often prevent our clients from being charged with obstruction of justice. In cases where records have already been destroyed, our lawyers may be able to deal with that on a case-by-case basis to minimize the damage to our client.
Avoid lengthy jail time, expensive fines, and a permanent criminal record - contact Orlando healthcare obstruction of justice attorneys today to schedule a confidential consultation.
Acquittal on a Criminal Charge May Still Result in Obstruction Charges
Even if you are innocent of committing healthcare fraud, destroying evidence or lying under oath constitutes obstruction of justice. In this regard, it is worth noting that Martha Stewart was sent to jail after being convicted of conspiracy and obstruction of justice - not on insider trading. Likewise, baseball star Barry Bonds was indicted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges for lying about his alleged use of steroids.
If you are under investigation for healthcare fraud, your innocence will not necessarily keep you out of jail or from being indicted if you lie to investigators or destroy important documents. Our Orlando criminal defense attorneys can counsel and represent you to ensure you don't incriminate or perjure yourself and end up facing obstruction of justice charges.
