Cedars-Sinai worker gets prison for stealing patient records

Los Angeles Times, June 16, 2009

A former Cedars-Sinai Medical Center employee was sentenced to four years, eight months in prison after pleading guilty today to stealing patient information to defraud insurance companies of $354,000. The hospital had sent letters in December to more than 1,000 patients, warning them that their personal information had been found during a search of the home of James Allen Wilson, who worked in the billing department at the Los Angeles facility between 2003 and 2007.
