Two Marietta chiropractors allegedly tried to scam insurers for $11 million by billing for physical therapy when they actually were providing massages and other services. Andrew Sokol, 41, and his wife, Julie Weisberg, 35, were arraigned on fraud charges today in federal court. The couple’s WellnessOne clinics allegedly drummed up business by waiving co-pays and giving patients gift cards, frozen turkeys, gift bags and catered lunches. All this resulted in “the patients being compensated … while paying nothing for the massages and chiropractic adjustments they received.”
Two years ago, a Fulton County sheriff’s lieutenant almost lost his job for pocketing a civilian’s knife, then lying about it. Department rules say dismissal is the minimum penalty for lying, but Sheriff Myron Freeman let Lt. Earl Glenn stay with a 30-day unpaid suspension. Today, Glenn admitted that he repeatedly struck a jail inmate last year and lied when the FBI asked about it. He faces up to 15 years in federal prison and a $500,000 fine.
