SUMMIT — A federal judge has rescheduled the sentencing hearing for a doctor and two others convicted in a multimillion-dollar fraud involving watered-down chemotherapy drugs and old needles.
Dr. Meera Sachdeva, Brittany McCoskey and Monica Weeks had been scheduled for sentencing Nov. 16 in U.S. District Court in Jackson. That has been pushed back until Dec. 7.
Sachdeva founded the Rose Cancer Center in the South Mississippi town of Summit in 2005. She pleaded guilty July 13 to one count of health care fraud and two counts of making false statements.
Weeks, who handled the clinic’s billing from her Ridgeland firm, Medical Billing Group, pleaded guilty the same day to conspiracy.
McCoskey, the office manager, pleaded guilty May 17 to making false statements.
