Judge gives cancer center defendants more time for defense
Published: January 25,2012
SUMMIT — A federal judge has granted a request to delay the trial of a doctor and two employees charged in a scheme to dilute cancer drugs and use old syringes on multiple patients.
Dr. Meera Sachdeva, Brittany McCoskey and Monica Weeks had been scheduled for trial Feb. 7. U.S. District Judge Dan Jordan signed an order last week pushing the trial back to May 2.
All three have pleaded not guilty. The womens’ attorneys wanted more time review thousands of pages of information related to the case.
Sachdeva, founder of Rose Cancer Center in Summit, has been held without bond since August on charges of diluting drugs and billing Medicaid and Medicare for more chemotherapy than patients were given. The others are free on bond.
The clinic has been closed.
