GLENDALE— A Glendale man was sentenced Monday to five years in state prison for running a health-care fraud and money laundering scheme that affected more than 800 Medicare patients in the Los Angeles region, officials said.
U.S. District Judge Margaret Morrow ordered Manuk Karapetyan, 46, to serve five years in prison after being convicted in March of multiple counts of health-care fraud and money laundering, officials said.
"It was a serious offense that had a number of aggravating circumstances," Assistant U.S. Atty. Steven Arkow said.
Once Karapetyan is released from prison, he will be placed on supervised probation and must pay $50,505 in restitution, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.
