A Fort Worth couple have been indicted on federal charges related to illegal kickbacks involving clinical laboratories in Texas and Virginia.
A McKinney man also was indicted by a federal grand jury last month on the same charge, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Texas. The indictments were unsealed Tuesday.
Federal authorities identified the Fort Worth couple as Sultan Sattar, 64, and his wife, Bibi Zabeda Sattar, 61. The McKinney man is 43-year-old Jeffrey Paul Cornwell, aka “Boomer.”
Each of the three was indicted on the federal charge of conspiring to pay for patient referrals in violation of the Anti-Kickback Statute.
