Newark, N.J. - A doctor practicing in Newark was convicted at trial of receiving cash kickbacks for diagnostic testing referrals, becoming the 14th doctor and 16th defendant to be convicted in connection with the government's investigation of illegal payments made by an Orange, N.J., diagnostic testing facility, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced today. Maryam Jafari, 43, was convicted of all three counts of a superseding indictment charging her with conspiracy and two counts of violating the federal health care anti-kickback statute after a three-week trial before U.S. District Judge Claire C. Cecchi in Newark federal court. The jury returned the guilty verdicts late Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 4, 2014) after two hours of deliberations.
