Prosecutors: Judge isn't getting the point about Dennis Nobbe's post-arrest shenanigans - 2020-09-07
On Friday, federal prosecutors filed an appeal of a judge's decision not to throw Scientologist chiropractor Dennis Nobbe into jail for some pretty outrageous behavior after he was arrested in July for Medicare fraud and PPP loan abuse.
We told you on Thursday that when Nobbe was charged on July 29 he was allowed to post $200,000 bond but only if he followed some strict guidelines, which included the promise that he not contact ex-employees the government planned to contact as witnesses.
Nobbe's arrest caught us by surprise, but we've known about him for years as a Miami Scientology bigwig who repeatedly ran into trouble with the government because he tried to force Scientology on his employees, even going so far to set up his own mini-"academy" across the street so his workers could get in some Scientology course time on breaks from their work at Dynamic Medical Services. Now he's facing serious charges that for years he was ripping off Medicare and patients through the use of physicians he had bribed. His clinic has been shut down as he's awaiting trial, and he has plenty of rules to follow in the meantime.
