Mr. Yielding was employed as a physicians assistant for Richard Jordan, a prominent Baptist Neurosurgeon. Yielding was able to dictate what products were ordered for use in surgery performed by Jordan. The commissions during that period totaled $380,000. Hopefully, this will send those scrub technicians, physicians assistants and operating room nurses a stern message. "You play, you will pay." Come on ladies and gentlemen, you know who you are. As this drama continues to unfold TSB and our readers await for the day that the DOJ elevates their commitment to clean up this industry by throwing some surgeons into jail.
Yielding will serve a minimum 80% of the 78 months since he was convicted of federal charges. Yes sirree, for those of you playing in this space any federal conviction requires a mandatory 80% of the sentence. In addition to jail time, Yielding is required to make restitution in the amount of $944, 995.84 (OUCH!) The sad part to this saga is that there is a child that not only was left motherless, but will be fatherless come March 10th, 2010.
TSB has to ask the FBI and DOJ what is taking you so long to put the other criminals behind bars. Stop pandering to the surgeons that continue to behave that they are beyond reproach starting their own distributorships while collaborating with other industry professionals. You know who you are, start looking over your shoulder. A double standard by the judicial system, TSB wants to know what our readers think?
