Glen Davis in fraud scheme

There must be other ways for former NBA stars to make money in retirement.

Big Baby’s Big Foul: Former NBA Star Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis Sentenced to 40 Months for Healthcare Fraud Scheme

On May 9, former Boston Celtics forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis was sentenced to 40 months in prison following his conviction for wire fraud, healthcare fraud, healthcare fraud conspiracy, and conspiracy to make false statements related to healthcare matters.

As background, prosecutors accused Davis of submitting fraudulent invoices to the National Basketball League (NBA) Players’ Health and Welfare Benefit Plan, causing the Plan to pay out funds for non-existent medical services. Davis’s alleged actions involved collaboration with Terrence Williams, another former NBA player, whereby the pair utilized forged documents and staged medical appointments to file fake claims. As a result of the alleged scheme, the Plan paid out over a million dollars in fraudulent claims.

Following trial, Davis was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, one count of conspiring to make false statements relating to health care matters, one count of health care fraud, and one count of wire fraud.

Prosecutors had originally requested a sentence of 37 to 46 months, as outlined by applicable federal sentencing guidelines. The 40-month sentence ultimately handed down by the Honorable Valerie E. Caproni fell within these guidelines, and also included three years of supervised release and an order for Davis to pay $80,000 in restitution jointly with co-defendant Rashad Sanford, an Atlanta-area chiropractor who conspired with Davis in a separate scheme.

It’s a crazy world. Someone oughta sell tickets.
