was also charged with three counts of submitting false claims to the Medicare program and two counts of money laundering. Gonzalez was charged with three counts of money laundering and one count of making a false statement to agents of the United States. In addition, the indictment seeks forfeiture of assets held by Harris and Gonzalez. If convicted, Harris and Gonzalez each face a maximum sentence of 60 years in prison.

A separate indictment alleges that between May 2003 and January 2004, Juan Carlos Castaneda, 47, Dilcia Marinez, 56, and Luis Frias, 60, conspired to submit approximately $14 million in false and fraudulent claims to the Medicare program for HIV infusion services allegedly provided at G&S Medical Center, an HIV infusion clinic operated by Castaneda, Marinez and Frias. As part of the scheme, Castaneda, Marinez and Frias allegedly retained physicians and physicians' assistants to work at G&S Medical to make it appear that legitimate HIV infusion services were being provided and hired a physician's assistant to train the physicians to make it appear that legitimate and appropriate medical services were being provided. Castaneda, Marinez and Frias would pay kickbacks to Medicare beneficiaries in exchange for the patients signing documents stating that they received the treatments being billed to Medicare. Such treatments were not provided or medically necessary. The indictment also alleges that Castaneda, Marinez and Frias laundered the proceeds of their crimes by sending the funds to sham management and marketing companies owned and controlled by their co-conspirators and by sending proceeds to companies they owned and controlled themselves. Furthermore, the indictment alleges that Castaneda and Marinez structured financial transactions of less than $10,000 to avoid financial reporting requirements.
