After spending nearly 10 months in prison, convicted dentist Nate Schott came back to his Murfreesboro home during the pandemic.
“I’m just glad to be back home,” Schott said Tuesday. He was released in late May but will finish his 33-month sentence on a fraud conviction locally.
Once Schott has completed his sentence, he’ll face three years of supervised release. His punishment also includes paying nearly $956,449 in restitution to victims of fraud, court records show.
Schott is required to report to the Federal Bureau of Prisons’ Nashville Residential Reentry Management Office whenever he leaves his home and wear an ankle bracelet to monitor his location for work, religious activities and social activities.
Prosecutors accused Schott of fraudulent billing practices through making employees submit false claims between November 2013 and January 2018 as the operator of Dental Excellence in Murfreesboro and Lebanon.
