Former Salinas Valley State Prison psychiatrist faces a 3-year prison term for falsifying time cards.
Last March in Monterey County Superior Court a prison physician was convicted on Grand Theft charges – specifically, he was stealing money from the state prisoner insurance fund.
Doctor Pedro Eva, age 49, was in fact merely 1 of four criminal doctors who thought gaining a measure of wealth by robbing the state was a good idea. According to Prosecutor Doug Matheson, investigators secretly tracked the doctors’ hours by using GPS, cellphone records and rental car receipts. They quickly learned that some of the medical miscreants had over-billed the state by $200,000 in a 3-month period by claiming they were on prison grounds working when they were not.
Two of the lab coat loonies - Doctors Randy Sid and David Hoban - had already been found guilty.
Eva and the other low-life docs were falsifying bills for medical services rendered at Salinas Valley State Prison, which is located in Soledad, even when they were not there. They would routinely arrive a 7a.m. and leave after several hours – then bill the system for 10-hour days and $150-250 an hour.
