Chiropractor James "Jay" Spina of Middletown, New York entered a guilty plea last week in an $80 million Medicare scam we told you about in September.

Spina initially filed a not guilty plea when the indictment was first announced, and his attorney told a local newspaper "we're going to continue to fight these charges" as Spina's business, renamed "Pain Relief and Wellness Center," remained open.

But now Spina, 61, joins a physician caught up in the scam, Charles Bagley, who previously pleaded guilty to the same charge, conspiracy to commit health care fraud. The charge carries a sentence of up to 10 years, and Spina's sentencing has been scheduled for September 17.
