In the city of East Hartford a physician already in prison for sexually assaulting a woman patient has been found guilty of actually having the nerve to bill Medicaid for the ‘examination’ during which the assault occurred.
Doctor Edwin Njoku, age 54, was convicted November 13 of felony “theft by defrauding” an insurance provider. As a result, his current 5-year sentence in state prison was extended by 18 months.
In August 2013, Njoku was found guilty of the original charge of sexual assault, as well as threatening a witness.
The good news is that the Connecticut State Department of Health revoked this nut’s license last year.
The bad news is, as in most cases of physician crime, Njoku will almost certainly be reissued another medical license in another state, when he is released from prison. And he will assuredly not be deported, as he would be in a saner society.
