Federal fraud charges against Filipino doc tossed
A judge has dismissed charges against a Filipino doctor accused of defrauding the U.S. military's healthcare program by submitting $2 million worth of bogus claims, saying prosecutors waited too long to arrest him after filing charges. U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb ruled that Diogenes Dionisio, MD's constitutional right to a speedy trial was violated because investigators waited four years to arrest him after his 2004 indictment.
