Hanan and Rizza Islam get trial date for $4 million Medi-Cal fraud at Scientology rehab - 2021-01-14
We have numerous legal updates for you today, starting with some news we've been waiting a long time to hear: Finally, there is a trial date set for Hanan and Rizza Islam.
At a pretrial conference on Tuesday trial was set for May 20 in the case, which seeks felony convictions against Hanan Islam, 61, and three of her children, including her son Ronnie "Rizza" Islam, 30.
It's hard to believe that it's been more than five years since we broke the news that felony charges had been filed against several Scientologists who had operated a sketchy Narconon rehab out of their "literacy center" in Compton, California. The Islams were charged with ripping off the Medi-Cal insurance program by submitting bogus charges in an elaborate scam that involved unsuspecting high school students who were used as clients in the scheme.
