A.G. Schneiderman Announces Arrest And Indictment Of Nonprofit Executives Charged In Kickback And Insurance Fraud Schemes

NEW YORK - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the arrest and indictment of the top two executives of Narco Freedom, a nonprofit organization that provides treatment for substance abuse to tens of thousands of New York City residents at ten locations in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. The organization's director, Alan Brand, allegedly received personal kickbacks for housing some of Narco Freedom's facilities in the buildings of a particular real estate developer. He then used the proceeds of these illegal dealings to fund a lavish lifestyle, according to today's indictment. Alan Brand has been charged with bribery, grand larceny and money laundering for this part of the alleged scheme; if convicted, he faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.
