Scientology chiro Dennis Nobbe drops dead after being informed he's going to jail - 2020-09-17
Scientology donor and Miami chiropractor Dennis Nobbe, 63, learned on Monday that the US district court had decided to revoke his bond and put him in custody while awaiting trial on Medicare fraud and PPP loan abuse. He immediately called his attorney to tell him the news, and while on the phone, dropped dead.
That's the account that attorney H. Dohn Williams Jr. told the court this week in a court filing. And so ends the life of Nobbe, who we had known for years as a major Scientology donor who had run into trouble repeatedly for trying to force Scientology on his employees.
We were stunned when Nobbe was arrested and charged in July for defrauding Medicare and for misusing money he had obtained from the Small Business Administration for COVID relief. He bonded out of custody for $200,000 and hired Williams to represent him.
