Mission man pleads guilty to healthcare fraud; used father’s signature

McALLEN — A Mission man indicted in connection with a healthcare fraud scheme pleaded guilty Wednesday, avoiding a jury trial that was expected to begin next week, court records show.

U.S. District Judge Micaela Alvarez accepted a guilty plea from William Edward Borjon to one of five counts in a healthcare fraud indictment filed in January, according to court records.

Borjon pleaded guilty to count 5 of the indictment, fraud with identification documents, which alleged that the 36-year-old man knowingly transferred, possessed and/or used without authorization, the identification of another person — his father, Dr. Eduardo Fausto Borjon, according to the seven-page indictment.
