Scientologist chiro Nobbe: There's an innocent explanation, judge. Prosecutors: No there isn't. - 2020-09-15
We have a couple of legal briefs for our document hounds today, and they present two radically different versions of reality.
The last time we dropped in on the criminal prosecution of Scientology donor and Miami chiropractor Dennis Nobbe, government prosecutors were appealing a court ruling and asking US Magistrate Judge Alicia Otazo-Reyes to revoke Nobbe's bond and put him in custody.
We've known Nobbe for years as a Scientology bigwig who repeatedly ran into trouble for forcing Scientology on his employees, going so far as to create a mini "academy" for his workers to take Scientology courses on their time off. But it was quite a surprise when, at the end of July, Nobbe was arrested and charged with Medicare fraud and PPP loan abuse.
