Fugitive surgeon found living in a tent on a snowy mountain in Italy gets seven years for defrauding patients of $30million

A former surgeon arrested on a snowy Italian mountainside after five years on the run was sentenced to seven years in prison Friday for billing insurers and patients for procedures he didn’t perform.

A federal judge imposed a more severe sentence than expected against Mark Weinberger, who ran a nose and  sinus clinic in Indiana until he disappeared during a European vacation shortly before he was charged.

Simon also said Weinberger had used his  patients as his own personal ATM machine, earning more than $30 million  in the three years before he fled.
