Scientologist chiro Jay Spina's clinic killed a patient say feds asking for 10-year sentence - 2020-06-20
We've learned that Middletown, New York chiropractor Jay Spina's sentencing has been moved back from April 3 to July 6, and also that the feds are asking the judge to throw the book at the Scientology donor not only for using elaborate ruses to rip off Medicare, but also for what a house of horrors his clinic was.
We first learned in 2018 that Spina and his brother Jeff were being charged for an $80 million Medicare scam that they ran out of their Middletown clinic. The facility went by several names, but most often as Dolman Avenue Medical (DAM) during the period under investigation. Two others who worked at DAM were also charged, one of whom was their sister Kim Spina. Separately, a physician who worked out of the clinic, Dr. Charles Bagley, has pleaded guilty to fraud.
The Spina brothers are longtime Scientologists who gave a lot of money and time to Scientology front groups like the Foundation for a Drug-Free World. And as you can see in the image above, Jay Spina was celebrated by Scientology leader David Miscavige for his service.
