Two Connecticut doctors with a joint practice in New York are headed to prison for getting thousands of dollars in a long-running bribes-for-test referrals scheme involving a New Jersey lab company.
Federal prosecutors say 65-year-old Richard Goldberg, of Weston, and 61-year-old Gary Leeds, of Greenwich, were each sentenced Tuesday to 20 months in prison. Goldberg also will have to serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed and pay a $5,000 fine, while Leeds must serve one year of supervised release and pay a $15,000 fine.
The two physicians also must each forfeit $108,000.
