Bail was set at $100,000 and a sentencing date is scheduled for June 21st. The surgeon faces five years of imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. If the DOJ intends on sending a message to our industry, maybe its time the Judge in this case throw the book at the individual in this case. Unfortunately, for every surgeon that truly contributes and deserves to be compensated for contributing to the development of innovative and emerging technology, there are too many of their peers that are involved in sham consulting agreements. TSB wants to know what our readers think? Do you believe the DOJ intends on cleaning things up or do you believe that this is all a big ruse?
